Poster of Sigmar Polke's 'Watchtower'. Originally created in 1984 with enamel paint on bubble wrap.
The materials used in this painting illustrate Polke’s interest in non-traditional materials and non-painterly processes. The unnerving watchtowers recalls the towers used to police Nazi concentration camps and those that were on the boundary walls between East and West Germany. The exact time period that this painting tries to convey is unclear – we can only see the sparse outline of the watchtower with enamel lacquer dripping down the canvas.
