The list of unfinished works in cultural history is long and spectacular, from Stanley Kubrick’s Napoleon film to David Foster Wallace’s novel »The Pale King«. In his essays, writer Thomas von Steinaecker tells stories of the failure of great artists and examines why works of art were not completed and why these fragments became myths. »A cabinet of curiosities of megalomania, at the same time: a homage to the human imagination« [DIE ZEIT].
