A broadsheet is the largest (standard) newspaper format. I cut broadsheets into A4 format, spray painted them on one side, and rolled them into cylinders; the resulting objects are not quite monochromatic or two-dimensional. The objects were scanned and are, again, offset printed and displayed as images in this publication. Mel Bochner’s installation Theory of Painting (1969 − 1970) is a reference for this work, a study of figure/ground through the temporal medium of newspaper. My contribution has an irregular but close relationship to this piece, as well as to the function of what in psychoanalytic theory is called the sinthome. The Broadsheets are a chain of declining mediums and their sustained reproduction.
