Lawrence Weiner, Rows of Cabbage, 2007

Edition 2007

Cabbage is inexpensive and was therefore often used to feed prisoners in concentration camps. Here, cabbage could metonymically represent those who subsisted on it, i.e. the Jews. Thus Wiener's text tells of the extermination of the Jews during World War II: Whoever eats cabbage today will be buried tomorrow in rows, bleeding, in a mass grave. This interpretation could be suggested by the text sculpture's installation location. After all, Haus der Kunst, which opened in 1937, was the showpiece of Nazi art and cultural policy. The edition depicts the words of Weiner's text sculpture against the silhouette of Haus der Kunst as a silkscreen print on iron.
We confronted Weiner with this interpretation, and asked him whether his Jewish background played a role in this work. His answer was neither yes nor no, but, rather, "perhaps".

Anish Kapoor: Svayambh, 2007

Both the sculpture in the 2007 exhibition and the edition are called "Svayambh", which is derived from Sanskrit "svayambhu(v)" and means "self-generated" or "born of itself". With the edition, the artist refers to the sculpture created for the exhibition and, thus, the associated creative process. MORE
