Tine Melzer will choose this Sunday’s getaway destination. Mirjam Bayerdörfer invited Tine Melzer for the 35th Outside Sunday.

– I once found myself at a speed dating format with Tine. Finding myself in front of her was something like my beginner’s luck, as it turned out later. It was the only pleasurable part of that night, trapped in attending this weird antiquely innovative networking game.
Another time, almost a year later, I found myself in the train’s board bistro sharing a small bottle of white wine with Tine. We were both returning to Zurich from Basel, one of the last art fair days. But none of us had been to the actual Art Fair. I had gone to the Art Awards, she to the book fair.
During this second speed dating session I felt that she had figured out something that I have been looking for quite desperately: How to embrace writing within the fine arts. After years dedicated to this question, together with friends and collaborators, I thought I had abandoned this topic recently. Instead it seems to reveal itself as the secret Outside Sunday topic of 2018: Text. Voice. Authorship. –
