|Note:||Since the beginning of 2007, Karlyn De Jongh searched for questions to On Kawara by persons who know the artist or his work very well. This resulted in a collection of 79 questions by people from all over the world. After several attempts to present these questions to On Kawara - trying to meet him in New York, sending postcards with the questions to him and contacting some of his close friends - until the day of this publication, the questions remain unanswered. |
