Description of Style

The term "composition" is commonly understood as "putting things together". On the other hand, Hannes Kerschbaumer understands it also in its opposite meaning: the decomposition. He thus deliberately crumbles the impulses he has set in his own series ".debris". This is a conception which inevitably leads to reduction.
