Tilman Osterwold writes in the preface:
"What is ABR?
A group language, a communication within and with a group, between media languages, from authors to audience;
A communication with its own history and its own images as collages, assemblages, picture montages;
A social aura, a plane between the chairs, nowhere at home; a communication on the spot, in other places with other places, with spaces, languages, images.
Art; itself an art;
An art to live, to arrange, to moderate, to speak, to communicate, to publish, to work;
An art in which images and spaces are created – addressed coquettishly;
A narcissistic art that loves itself, but without being self-sufficient."
