Dan Graham's Kammerspiel

description

Artist Jeff Wall's critical interpretation of Dan Graham's conceptual art piece "Alteration to a Suburban House" and its implications. "Dan Graham's unrealized (and possibly unrealizable) project 'Alteration to a Suburban House' (1978), generates a hallucinatory, almost Expressionist image by means of a historical critique of conceptual art. In this work, conceptualism is the discourse which fuses together three of the most resonant architectural tropes of this century (the glass skyscraper, the glass house and the suburban tract house) into a monumental expression of apocalypse and historical tragedy." -- Jeff Wall
