Sam Durant did a large piece you can walk into using forms taken from gallows to question the death penalty. Emily Jacir took inscriptions from Palestinian books looted by Israel in 1948 and placed them around Kassel. Amar Kanwar had an installation in the Natural History Museum showing rice seeds and large handmade books with film projectors above them, so the image stayed when you turn the page. Lara Favaretto had a huge installation of scrap metal near the train station. Doug Ashford did small geometric paintings juxtaposed with photographs. I didn’t get a good photo of them, so I am showing the house in which they are displayed. That’s Mr Ashford in blue on the left.
