After being invited to Manifesta 4, Christoph Büchel offered his participation rights to the highest bidder on eBay who purchased this eventually for $15,099.
On 20th of March 2002 I contacted Christoph Buechel to have a solo exhibition in my gallery in Amsterdam. He proposed to become the highest bidder of his eBay offer. Being the highest bidder Galerie van Gelder would have had a solo exhibition of Christoph Buechel at Manifesta 4 in Frankfurt, Germany. Unfortunately the highest bid was a bit too high for the gallery’s financial standards.
