École nationale supérieure des beaux-arts de Paris
The first exhibition of this new program, “The Angel of History”, explores the themes of ruins and debris in art. It is based on a famous text by Walter Benjamin, inspired by a watercolor by Paul Klee, the portrait of The Angel of History, “which faces backwards as it is blown towards the future”, and likens the historical process to a field of ruins. ---
