|Abstract: ||Image from "Mirroring Evil: Nazi Imagery/Recent Art" Exhibition at The Jewish Museum (2002).|
|Description: ||A room "papered with alternating photographs of Hitler and Marcel Duchamp, portrait heads that happened to have been taken, years apart, by the same photographer, Heinrich Hoffmann. Mr. Herz seems to find this coincidence fascinating. The photographs are arranged on the walls in a checkerboard pattern. (Chessboard is more apt, considering Duchamp's obsession with chess, a kind of inside joke Mr. Herz enjoys, having titled the work "Zugzwang," which is a term for a chess position where any move loses.)" From Michael Kimmelman, "Evil, the Nazis and Shock Value," NYTimes, (March 15, 2002).|
