In this session, take a closer look at how German artist Isa Genzken’s room-sized sculptural installation Der Amerikanische Raum (The American Room) investigates concepts of nationalism, globalism, and consumerism through the arrangement of a multitude of found objects, and their significance as cultural symbols.
