Gregor Schneider cube Hamburg
A family event called me back into my hometown Hamburg over the weekend. The spae between the Galerie der Gegenwart and the Kunsthalle currently hosts Gregor Schneider's "Cube Hamburg, 2007" - a massive black cube that was banned from the biennale in Venice because organizers feared it might provoke islamic extremists responses due to its similarity with the Kaba in Mekka. Although I was told that the artist denied any intentional similarity during the presentation of his work, I consider the resemblance as quite striking. I really liked it.
