Barn Again and Torn Notebook


Availability: Available



Barn Again There’s a certain romance about barns. Those enduring edifices that dot the landscapes of American farms from New England to the West Coast are more than just shelters for animals or grain. Sometimes beautiful, sometimes very plain, barns are symbols of sentiment, heritage and progress. They are one of the most distinctive forms of American architecture. Torn Notebook For nearly three decades, Claes Oldenburg and his wife and collaborator Coosje van Bruggen have designed and built public sculptures around the world. Often, they take everyday objects and blow them up to monumental proportions with humorous and profound results. In the fall of 1996, they unveiled their latest work, "Torn Notebook" in Lincoln, Nebraska. This video follows the creation, engineering, installation and dedication of a monumental outdoor sculpture by this internationally known husband-and-wife team. The work was installed on the University of Nebraska-Lincoln campus in 1997. Length 120 minutes
