Computer virus with the sole purpose of destroying all digital collection files of the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam.
Book XXXVI was born of - paraphrasing Albert Camus - the intelligence’s refusal to reason the concrete. The work embodies a drama of the intelligence, but it proves this only indirectly.1
Book XXXVI is stored on a USB memory stick. When connected to a computer with direct access to the digital collection files of the museum, the virus will automatically start an irrevocable and irreversible destruction process.
