Fresh Widow

I went to K20 today to see a very interesting exhibition Fresh Widow: Fenster-Bilder seit Matisse und Duchamp (Window Paintings since Matisse and Duchamp).  Of course, I was drawn by its apparent architectural connection to the window.

Olafur Eliasson's presence at the show alone is already worth the visit.  His installations Window Projection, Your Roundabout Movie and Seeing Yourself Seeing are the best of the show.

Other outstanding works include those by Gerhard Richter, Ellsworth Kelly, Josef Albers and Sabine Hornig.  I want to share here the picture of a window I took a couple of years ago in Köln:
