Deutsche Museen

For their photogravure series Deutsche Museen Elmgreen & Dragset worked with photographs of eight empty German museum spaces. It is customary for museums to provide their collaborating artists with images of the empty exhibition spaces to facilitate exhibition planning. Elmgreen & Dragset used a selection of these images to create seemingly multi-coloured photogravures which, in a technically demanding process, are created from only two printing plates and with only two basic colours. The works question the concept of the White Cube, the idea that a space can be so featureless and neutral that it fully disappears behind the artworks displayed in it.
