This printed sheet of paper was taken from a past manifestation of an artwork by Felix Gonzalez-Torres that was made in conjunction with Christopher Wool. The artwork was originally exhibited as part of the artists 1993 collaboration for Printed Matter in Dia, New York. Gonzalez-Torres specified that the ideal height of the artwork was eight inches and that visitors are always allowed to take individual printed sheets from the stack. The text on the printed sheet is taken from Russian writer and philosopher Vasili Rozanov’s definition of Nihilism.
