Exposed-spine binding. Publisher's description: Never to be able to see through the eyes of another, never to feel what another one feels, since every emotion that we can create necessarily remains our very own this dilemma is the starting point of Wagner s explorations and is examined throughout Poietry. In desperate need of connection to transcend our fundamental solitude our disposition is standing in the way of this endeavor, rendering its success indeed improbable. By appropriating different theoretical and interdisciplinary approaches, Wagner s work investigates how art as a medium may qualify to challenge the improbability of connection through communication. It scratches at the boundaries that constitute our walls, even if they can t be brought to fall and with these experimental explorations proposes a different way of thinking through the possibilities and impossibilities of connecting.
