  • Paul de Moor wrote a book about decreasing memory in response to the photos of Karin Borghouts of her burned parental home.

    ‘How do I remember my house? I’m not sure I want to. The house is a black painting that fits precisely in my head. I can see it now. The frame of the painting is black. The canvas is black. The hot breath of the fire has painted black blisters on the canvas.’
