Boxed in

The representation of an installation from the 1959 Documenta by artist Julio González shows how much things have changed. The original display of the three works was simply presented on a long table. Fifty-three years later, even when committed to replicating the original display, the curators felt compelled to cover the three sculptures with an anachronistic Perspex box.
