Self-portrait as a building

All the work that Manders creates is part of a a big self-portrait: the "Self-portrait as a building", his life's work on which he has been working since 1986. This self-portrait is supplemented and revised over the years. The public sees a snapshot of this self-portrait that is always in motion. After Manders has created a work, he leaves it behind in his “building”.
