Art at Zimmerli Museum. Thought Experiments and Provocation.

The two pieces of art shown above made me feel very different things. Left one is a picture of peaceful Russian countryside with “Danger” written in red on the side. While this does reflect the culture, it also does much more buy provoking people to think about this culture, and more specifically to be disgusted and an angry about it, which in turn will make them want to change it. The other piece however simply made me go “what is this crap?”. I stood there for good 5 minutes struggling to find meaning and had to ask one of the staff for guidance. While I don’t necessarily care about its image, I appreciate that the author made me go deep in thought, not many things try to do this anymore, but art is one that still does.
