This artist book series - a nonlinear combination of installation, performance and the book - is one result of Silverberg's ambulatory mapping project about New York City. Since 2009, the artist has created hundreds of handmade flyers 7 posting and placed them in specific locations around the city. These postings engage the viewer in a discourse on 'private vs. public', while Silverberg explores the psycho-geography of place and its memory.
"abriss" -kante is German for the tearoff edge or stub.
