“Rag Picking” straddles the boundaries between art, sound and media, providing an unusual way of accessing Walter Benjamin’s writings.“Rag Picking” is based on Steve Roden’s analysis of the writings in the Benjamin archives at the Akademie der Künste Berlin. As Roden himself does not understand German, the visual qualities alone of the corrections, comments and colour coding Benjamin used when composing his texts provide the structure for a total of four works that use different media (sound, video, graphics) to illuminate the various aspects of Benjamin's "notations".
