Lena Francis and me, all of us with different backgrounds as artists and curators, we intended to make a collection of things which would tell a media history. This was of such a complexity it make us talk and discuss a lot. We came up with the solution to put together an exhibition of personal objects belonging to international artists and thinkers. These guests and us we wrote down the stories of these objects we put together in an exhibition: sim-cards, selfie-sticks, a highschool yearbook, a flight jacket or a wedding cake. Within the symposium at the exhibition’s end Hans-Christian Dany, Olia Lialina and Zsolt Miklósvölgy were talking and discussing about artistic practices, media archeology and much more.
