Found


This is an entry in a journal themed "Found". My pages started with the little green ticket on the right page which I found at Berlin, Alexanderplatz, on August 3rd, 2005. It´s a ticket for the Montreal transportation service. This led me to thoughts about Alfred Döblin´s great novel "Berlin Alexanderplatz" (1929) and his life, his exile in so many places (which I´ve listed on the left page), finding and losing your luck and searching for it all the time.
Döblin himself used collage techniques in his novel, blending in newspaper scraps, advertisements, and so on.
And I´ve found a friendship with the owner of the journal via internet in March 2006, but that´s another story and not illustrated here ...
