I was at the Museum of Modern Art this week. A rainy day expedition.

Martin Kippenberger’s massive installation, The Happy End of Franz Kafka’s ‘Amerika,’ on display a floor above the atrium (re?)imagines the ending of Kafka’s first and unfinished novel. It “depicts the job interview as spectator sport.”

I imagine MoMA curators huddled in a circle in discussion of how the museum’s exhibitions can respond to the times.

This is exactly what they feel like.

For more on the Kippenberger installation, read the NYtimes article on the exhibition.
