The US conceptual artist Barbara Kruger (born 1945) is world-famous for her large-format posters and written installations, with which she questions common social stereotypes from a feminist and consumer-critical perspective. As a homage to Mies van der Rohe and his famous building in Berlin, the essential parts of the architecture remain untouched by Kruger's artistic intervention, which is hardly recognisable to visitors from a distance and can only be experienced by entering the building. Through the chosen text in the form of several critical statements, the artist addresses political and social issues that invite public discourse.
