The point of departure for the installation was Goya’s etching The Sleep of Reason Produces Monsters (1797-99, detail above), plate No. 43 in “The Caprichos” series, and the etching originally intended to be the frontispiece of the portfolio. On this week’s Modern Art Notes Podcast, Cardiff and Miller explain why Goya’s etching interested them when they made the piece in 2008, at the end of the George W. Bush administration.
Images from European installations of The Murder of Crows are here. Plus: There’s an audio excerpt from the piece on this week’s MAN Podcast!
