The Elephant in the Room – Sculptures of the Marx Collection and of the Collection of the Nationalgalerie on display at Hamburger Bahnhof – Museum für Gegenwart – Berlin addresses an essential aspect of sculpture from the 1960s: the spatial effect of sculptures. With works by Absalon, Joseph Beuys, Donald Judd, Jeff Koons, Rachel Whiteread and others the exhibition focuses on the relationship between works of art and spatiality. Drawn from the English expression, “the elephant in the room”, the elephant in the exhibition title refers to those forces and factors that despite their not being an integral part of the sculptures exert their presence in the exhibition space and are thus an essential component of an expanded concept of art that originated in the 1960s.
