Where form meets function

A lead-up to this year’s midterm elections, The Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles has reinstalled Barbara Kruger‘s Untitled (Questions) from 1990. The piece, which features nine questions, is currently on display on the 30-foot wall of the MOCA’s Geffen building in downtown LA.

“Who is beyond the law? Who is bought and sold? Who is free to choose? Who does time? Who follows orders? Who salutes the longest? Who prays the loudest? Who dies first? Who laughs last?,” the mural reads, as it is designed to portray the American flag.

Kruger’s Untitled (Questions) was originally installed when the MOCA was just 11 years old. The museum now plans to leave the mural up until the 2020 presidential election.

In speaking with the Los Angeles Times, Kruger recently noted, “It’s both tragic and disappointing that this work, 30 years later, might still have some resonance.”

Be sure to get out and vote during the midterm elections.
