In her contribution to the catalogue, "Objects Like You and Me", philosopher Monika Schwärzler provides an in-depth analysis of Arno Gisinger's photographic approach to the topic of "aryanisation". She interprets his work as portraits in which the individual objects are like actors making their appearance on the stage of a depot. Through photographic representation and linguistic designation, the objects become stand-ins for the fate of personal possessions - and ultimately the fate of the people who owned them.

In addition, four installations strategically placed within the Imperial Court "Depot of Movables" permanent exhibit establish a spatial and institutional link to the special collection.
