Reina Sofia ‘A Place for the Body’ installation image

‘The work of Franz Erhard Walther ... spans a period from the late 1950s to the present day. It anticipates many issues that came to the fore in later art history, such as the condition of the artistic object (sculpture, its materials, techniques and uses) and the nature of the viewer as receiver and participant.’ Excerpt Reina Sofia website, Madrid.
