After the exhibition The Anarchistic Amateur's Archive was shown since September 2019 at < rotor > in Graz and the exhibition was prolonged until the end of January, it is to be seen for one month in the City Gallery Waidhofen an der Ybbs.

This exhibition project brings together his writings with works by contemporary artists. It gives an impetus for a contemporary examination of anarchism, which “through radically democratic principles ‘wished to establish’ a societal framework suitable for providing the greatest possible freedom to the individual,” and providing “the greatest possible equality and justice,” as author Ilija Trojanow writes. In the present time, when ideological narrow-mindedness, rising nationalism, and totalitarian tendencies are trying to take root again, this is more relevant than ever.
