These objects were in response to the issue of how an object becomes as art object, as posed by the curators at Essays and Observationsin Berlin:

For the seventh exhibition at Essays and Observations, we have decided to look at problems around presentation and representation, and the Benjaminian concept of “aura.” In our second show, “The Mistake,” in September 2010, we gathered together different opinions on how a particular object stemming from an artistic context actually becomes an “art object.” This show made clear how some objects carry their context with them, and that some do not.
