"Every artwork is far more than merely a collection of objects. It also draws on a vast purview of other works, ideas, definitions, interpretations, stimuli and inspirations. Collectively, they make up a discursive biotope that is the work's habitat. This also holds true for books. They are always collections, especially abecedaries serving as dictionaries or manuals. Arrayed in alphabetical order, the texts in this book revolve around the work of Peter Bauhuis. Some articles examine Bauhuis' works - vessels, jewellery and other implements. Others provide accounts of the milestone places, people and encounters that mark the artist's path. There are thoughts and texts that contemplate technical and poetic processes and connect the dots between the aesthetic, social and cultural aspects of Bauhuis' art. This book is not only a monograph devoted to Peter Bauhuis' art, it is also a work that stands on its own merits."
