T.S. Eliot (Four Quartets ) 
(English. Original)

Time present and time past
Are both perhaps present in time future,
And time future contained in time past.
If all time is eternally present
All time is unredeemable.
What might have been is an abstraction
Remaining a perpetual possibility
Only in a world of speculation.
What might have been and what has been
Point to one end, which is always present.

Since 2018, Joachim Blank has been photographing the contents of GEO magazines (1976 – 1999) with his smartphone while leafing through them. The resulting image archive currently comprises more than 3,000 photos. In the art space Die Möglichkeit einer Insel, seven images from this archive form the basis for a newly produced exhibition.
