the scaffold behind the object

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.
