Collection 3: Image of something invisible

February 9― May 6, 2019

As a response to the solo exhibition by Christian Boltanski, who has described his work as a funeral honoring the dead, a group of pieces from the museum collection will be presented based on the keyword, "invisible things," and the themes, "for the dead," "with the artist ," and "to the heavens."
