For Barsuglia’s edition, the artist embossed a steel knife onto 450g/m² paper that he subsequently marked with a future date using the acetone frottage technique. This process allowed him to create an edition of handmade graphic prints.

“The work consists of two opposite, contradicting statements. On the one hand, the German word ERLEDIGT (done) refers to a completed past action or finished event. On the other hand, the date suggests an action or event in the future. The contradiction of this oxymoron is deliberate and refers to Ödon von Horvath’s concept of the “ehemaligen Zukunft” (former future)—for what lies in the future will be accomplished by the present, catch up with the future, and fade into the past as a trace. Like cutting a knife, the present separates the past from the future.”
