(Heute) Crossed Out


Time...cannot be regained...the changing dates are a record and a reminder of time passing. Irrevocably, tomorrow will turn into today, or "heute," which Darboven will write as a word on the page only to cross it out, signifying time spent.

--Coosje Van Bruggen, "Today Crossed Out," Artforum XXVI/5 (Jan. 1988): 71.
