 Robert Rauschenberg

This reactive installation, conceptually similar to the smaller sculptural works like «Revolver,» was the first of its kind to be exhibited in the context of documenta (1968). The visitor passes through brightly lit sliding doors, made out of plexiglass and covered by prints, and enters the pictorial space literally. At the same time, states Rauschenberg, the installation was a spectacle also for the non-participating audience.
