|Abstract: ||Zbigniew Libera, b. 1959. Born and works in Poland. LEGO Concentration Camp by Libera (1997). From "Mirroring Evil" exhibition at The Jewish Museum (2002).|
|Description: ||"From the perspective of the Holocaust, Libera's most provocative—and some might say most outrageous work—is Lego (1996), a seven-box limited edition of three LEGO sets of a concentration camp. Libera worked with the LEGO Corporation of Denmark to produce boxes which looked like "normal" LEGO systems. Inside were the bricks and other pieces to construct the concentration camp shown on the cover. The outer box looks like a normal LEGO box except in the upper left corner—instead of the "system number" is the inscription: 'This work of Zbigniew Libera has been sponsored by LEGO.'"
