Robert Szczerbowski began his work in the seventies as a writer. The multi-stylistic Book of Life (1979-85) published without an author’s name suggests to the reader, that it was written by all writers across time. The next book, (1986-1991) available currently on the internet has a dictionary-like quality and is without a title as well. It is a double text created as if there was no narrator. The last of his publications (1996-97) is an illustrated catalogue of a fictitious exhibition of 40 objects.
