Jörg Herold, the artist

Jörg Herold and his charming wife Jackie are our guests in Georgia. They enjoy Georgian food and drinks, the sulfur bathes and massages and are busy with some very urgent and secret projects on the Caucasus theme. He told me great stories, eating Kebab, spicy Khinkali and drinking Kazbegi-Beer about his discoveries at the Crimea on behalf the plane crash of Joseph Beuys in 1943 near Maikop and about his archiviing projects of inventarizing every single object in 1 room households of accidential citizens. He did this in Wolfsburg and plans to do it now in Georgia. There is a fresh release of a catalogue of his works called "Jörg Herold. Zeugnisse und Schriften der Reise eines Dokumentararchäologen" very interesting to study, in German language, you may order it here:
