Conceptual installation with lost&found sheets of paper from the streets of Mainz collected by the artist Brandstifter and presented on the outside of an accessible wooden cube. An art in public space project by V.E.B. Freie Brandstiftung in cooperation with Kulturdezernat Landeshauptstadt Mainz. Visitors or passerby can take part in the exhibition by submitting their found papers for the participative project in the mail box at the cube. The Asphalt Librarian will turn them into large Blow ups and integrate them into the constantly changing exhibition. Brandstifter developed his concept Asphaltbibliotheque for archiving found pieces of papers at Mainzer Galerie Walpodenstraße 21 in 1998. Since then he collects and exhibits them worldwide for example 2009 as artist in residency at Flux Factory New York with grants by Schloss Balmoral, Stiftung Rheinland-Pfalz für Kultur. The two month exhibition will be guided by a 24 hours performance with members of the performing arts ensemble 'Raum (0)' on July 27th and a fanzine that displays the progress of the project and lost&found art that can be submitted by E-mail through
