Daniel Buren

Multiplikationen, Arbeit in situ für eine Synagoge

Accordingly, you will also search the synagogue in vain for an exhibit. Yet Buren’s minimal language of form does accomplish a radical alteration of the history-laden location: In the unfurnished room, whose five windows are located halfway up the wall and permit virtually no look outside, Buren covered the parallel walls, as well as walls parallel to the entrance, entirely in mirrors. As a result, the room multiples, with the windows and visitors reflected countless times and becoming the true object of his inquiry.
