The Cloisters Model, Part 1

 

2017, transcripts and book pages collaged with selected paper materials and foils

4 parts, each 100 x 100 x 10 cm

Deutsches Haus at NYU, New York

 

Letter correspondence between the architect of The Cloisters and the curator of the Metropolitan Museum are

transcribed. The dialogue between the two men shows their different approaches to planning and vision of a 

museum building for Medical Art as well as to using elements from European ruins as building components.

These transcripts are paired with old photographs of The Cloisters found in a discarded book.
