Interview with curator Philipp Kaiser on the exhibition “Ends of the Earth – Land Art to 1974”

In an interview with DER SPIEGEL, Philipp Kaiser, one of the curators of the exhibition "Ends of the Earth", demonstrates to what extent the exhibition refutes long-standing ideas about Land Art and expands on these: "Land Art was Michael Heizer, Walter De Maria and Robert Smithson. That's where our exhibition goes against the grain of history: Even these three men did not appear out of thin air; their ideas had a longer history. And there were many women who did Land Art. On view, for instance, is a wonderful work by Alice Aycock: a minimalist square, with which she brings the earth of Death Valley into the exhibition space."
