Lotty Rosenfeld




Using white tape, the Chilean artist turns traffic lane markings into crosses. She thereby reminds us of a similar, but politically much more explosive artistic measure carried out in Chile in 1979, when the military dictatorship still ruled. A video of the latter work can be viewed in the Fridericianum.

Kassel's municipal sanitation department immediately removed the strips of tape, apparently unaware that these were part of an art project.
