A Series of Thoughts consists of four parts: El Greco in Toledo, Leonardo’s Tears, On Board the USS Ticonderoga and A Museum in Essen. The series comprises a train of thought on the religiously and politically motivated and, in military terms, strategically executed sacrifice of sons. El Greco in Toledo documents, in 2009, the existence of the painting “The Burial of the Count of Orgaz” that El Greco completed in 1588. Leonardo’s Tears combines all views of the Brazilian midfielder Leonardo Nascimento de Araujo that were broadcast from the Soccer World Cup 1998 with a text collage on “Grace Jones” from the year 1986. On Board the USS Ticonderoga retells a photograph that Wayne Miller took on November 5, 1944, on board an American aircraft carrier in the Pacific. A Museum in Essen shows the spaces of the new building of Museum Folkwang by David Chipperfield Architects that were still empty in December 2009, and into which one can imagine the preceding images.
