Photo-souvenir : Une peinture en deux – trois placements possibles, travail situé, March 1971-May 1977 (105 x 123 cm.) © Daniel Buren / ADAGP, Paris 2017. Détail

“The stripes also tend to transform whatever space they inhabit, rendering familiar public spaces unfamiliar, calling into question the values we attach to these spaces and their role as a forum for competing–and often contentious–artistic, public and state interests.” (A. Considine, “Between the Lines,” Art in America, Jan. 24, 2013, http://www.artinamericamagazine.com/news-features/news/daniel-buren-petzel-bortolami-1/ [accessed October 2017]).
