“If we experience our humanity as something endlessly appropriated and inevitably subject to dissolution, this would explain why Donald Baechler’s images are collaged, seemingly pathetically pieced together, from the detritus of our daily lives, and why his writings take the form of questions, diaristic entries, unsent letters, anecdotes, monologues and interviews, where the performative overtakes linguistic protocols.”
