Since the 1970s, Dan Graham (born 1942 in Urbana, Illinois. lives and works in New York) has experimented with semi-transparent glass for his pavilions.

One of the largest groups of works in Dan Graham’s oeuvre are models.

Not all of them are intended or even suitable for a full-scale realization. Conversely, all of Graham’s works have the character of models and therefor first and foremost ideas.

In 1966, Graham published in Arts Magazine „Homes for America,“ that initiated what would become a relentless tackling of the city plan and the politics of the gaze—topics that lie at the core of his world-famous pavilions.

He mentioned: „As you walk around the piece, the sky changes, your body changes and you can see your own body changing, and other people’s bodies changing.“
