Published in the form of a catalogue, After the Ten Thousand Things was a commission from the Seventh Museum, a public art project in Den Haag.

Mimicking the formal aspects of Old Masters’s painting catalogues, the book is an exploration and reflection on collectors and collecting, urban dérives, other European histories, as well as an attempt at rethinking what could be thought as site-sensitive works.

With more than 500 black and white images, After the Ten Thousand Things is a lucid document about the past’s imbrications in our ever shifting present. In this case, Den Haag, Europe, 1994.
