After being invited to Manifesta 4, Christoph Büchel offered his participation rights to the highest bidder on eBay. The final bid was eventually $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 ‘by Christoph Buechel’ at Manifesta 4 in Frankfurt, as is stated in his mail. KvG

This artist’s book defines five ways of handling the national flag of Denmark:
1. having stood for (as)
2. having stood in (as)
3. having stood up (as)
4. having stood over (as)
5. having stood down (as)
and hence creating various images of how one may use a flag e.g., in a patriotic sense, a colonial way, a representing manner, and so on.

For CUT magazine about art Lee McDonald made the above edition, all handmade. He seldom makes a work that is not tested by himself. Here, the owner of the multiple may test the parachute by dipping the tea bag in a glass of warm water to give it a bit of weight before throwing it into the air to see what happens. This means that basically 34 tests could be run by the owners, hence its title “Fragmented Test 2645”.
