Lawrence Weiner (*1942 lives in New York & Amsterdam) builds sculptures with

language which can be carried by walls, posters and also beer mats or manhole

covers. Whilst in Zamość he occupied the Renaissance arcades of the Armenian

houses in the main square with his statement Catalogue #851 in Potsdam

with the same work he has given a strong graphic expression to the rows

of pillars which run around the Potsdam Library, a building from the early 1970's

at Platz der Einheit. Visible from a distance, the white text stands on a luminous

red background.
