Robert Smithson


Robert Smithson (1938 – 1973) is one of the pioneers in this exhibition. He was perhaps the most brilliant of the American land artists. His most famous work, >Spiral Jetty< was made in a formerly commercially used area at the Salt Lake in Utah. The film, which is part of the work, shows the car ride to the shore, the raising of the spiral jetty in the lake, the artist walking over the bumpy spiral, while the sun is reflected in the water, but also pre-historic exhibits from the Museum of Natural History in New York, and cartographic material. Thus we can experience the becoming and passing of the earth, across times and spatial limits.






Dear partners, supporters, friends and lovers,

due to the COVID-19 Virus our little ETF! office in Berlin remains closed and we are working from home.

As many fellow artists, creatives and freelancers this Corona crisis has hit us hard.
We had hoped to send out a newsletter this spring informing you all about our 19th venue in Lisbon, which was supposed to open in Carpintarias São Lázaro on the 19th of June 2020.
Now, with all the cancellations and the shut down of cultural life we hope to postpone and for EXAMPLES TO FOLLOW! to still be part of the program of Lisboa Green Capital 2020.
We will keep you posted.

Keep safe.
