[Manual on the back of the book]
'This publication was conceived as a supplement to the forgotten life of Eva Schippers, showing the parts of an artistic practise that are seldom exposed; failures, unfinished ideas, stolen sentences, unwritten stories. These fragments are collected and spread over five posters in chronological order; starting with the most recent finds and then going back in time untill 1997, the year when I started collecting to remember. It consists of approximately 480 images. Images to be remembered, reused and appropriated. With the contribution of the writer Maria Barnas, reflecting upon the affect of collecting and archiving, the Black and Blues is the first supplement. It is a transient attempt to display a complete collection of ideas and a practise that is always in motion, by marking this moment.
