The title Die Dinge der Welt [The Things of the World] says: everything. It uses a terminology and language that perhaps currently seems old-fashioned. The title is big and tells of the desire to create and understand connections. The title is a challenge, a presumption and an excessive demand! The things of the world are not comprehensible. Or they no longer exist. Or they have become too many. They have turned into situations and constellations, materiality and manifestation, and then again new realities. In view of the chaos, order seems like a naive pipe dream.
