Fehrenbach, Frank; Krüger, Matthias; Mersch, Dieter; Böhme, Hartmut; Bartelsheim, Sabine; Wagner, Monika; Hauser, Jens; Weltzien, Friedrich; Keazor, Henry; Lange-Berndt, Petra (2016). Kein Land in Sicht. Der Klimawandel, der BND und das Ende der Land Art. In: Krüger, Matthias; Fehrenbach, Frank. Der Achte Tag. Naturbilder in der Kunst des 21. Jahrhunderts. Berlin/Boston: De Gruyter, 59-75.

Abstract

What part can a boulder lay in the context of the greatest threat to humanity in the 21st century: anthropogenic climate change? This paper will attempt - using Michael Heizer`s relocation of boulders in 1969 and 2012 as well as a simulation of a boulder by Stefan Sous in front of the new BND building in Berlin - to analyse how boulders become policy. What does it mean for the image of nature when both a museum and an institution geared towards invisibility and secrecy, like the Federal Information Bureau use art to stage themselves as deserts?
