The double projection of the cited works of art on the drums alludes to the practice of arthistory-lectures, where slides are presented in pairs for purposes of comparison.

In 1979, the art historian Martin Warnke published an ideologically disconcerting collection of citations from popular arthistorical publications (including Reclam’s “Kunsthefte” or “Blaue Bücher”). These passages are recited and accented by drumbeats.
