Schreib bitte wieder bald, ich warte jeden Tag auf Post (Please write again soon, I wait every day for mail) centers around the idea that postcards are more and more replaced by other – digital and less personal – communication tools. These tools are changing ways of interpersonal interaction, and are at the same time also a result of changes in interpersonal interaction and relations. In the installation visitors are invited to send old postcards to themselves. The postcards that are being used for this have been collected at flea markets and thrift stores and are telling stories of their own, of their time, of their former author and recipients. After readdressing a postcard, the new recipients can either choose to interpret the story as being addressed to them, or they can remove their address label and reconnect the original author and the person who the card was originally addressed to.
