Ibrahim Mahama at Kunsthalle Osnabrück

Dressing the city building in the linen of "forced laborers" - it's.. a metaphor for sure. But putting a dress on a building interestingly Venturi-Scott-Browns it’s architectural identification.

But its the only way symbolism works, you explicitly tell people what it means.
