Berlin is full of constructions. Every week the city looks different, even on the just about 6km that I cycle to work every day. Have a look at the picture below. One week, there is a building, the next there is this hole, and today there is a wooden fence so I can’t even see the hole anymore. Let’s see what blossoms on this areal in a couple of months when spring is back.
There’s not much that I can say better or new about Olafur Eliasson’s current exhibition Innen Stadt Aussen in Berlin (highly recommended and still on until 9 August). But I might add a dimension: the scaffolding behind the objects.
The (admittedly shaky) image depicts the construction behind Eliasson’s object Mikroskop 2010 providing a view on the ongoing showings of Frida Kahlo’s work and a model of Teotihuacán, the majestic city near Mexico City.
