Thank you.\n\nThe Kabakov’s Palace of Projects installation at Zeche Zollverein in Essen, of which this mixed media artwork can be seen as both a part and a visualization, displays, in the artists’ words, “a seemingly common known and even trivial truth: the world consists of a multitude of projects, realized ones, half-realized ones and not realized at all. Everything that we see around us, in the world surrounding us, everything that we discover in the past, that which possibly could comprise the future—all of this is a limitless world of projects.” Ilya and Emilia Kabakov are convinced that “to have one’s own project, to realize it, perhaps, should be inherent in every person: the project is the concentration, the embodiment of meaning of life and it is the moment of determination of the project that marks the beginning of true human existence.”
