rudolf stingel at the neue kunst museum

This is what we found when we went to the Neue Museum on Sunday.  A big room, with a carpet and a chandelier.  It's an instalation by Rudolf Stingel.  The Art is the carpet - and the process he went through to design it is actually quite interesting - he studied his Turkish Carpet, digitalised the image, enlarged it,  made it black and white and then had it made into an enormous rug that fitted the Neue Gallery space.
Probably more interesting was watching how people related to the art - most people chose to have a sit, relax and have a chat.  Downstairs, Rudolf Stingel also had a couple of paintings, so we did get to see some "proper" art after all.
