Potato Contraption. It’s Art.

I guess I’ll chalk this one up to modern art where the amusement factor overshadowed everything else. Seen in the Hamburg Art Museum.

Is it supposed to be a miniature of the universe? Pointlessness? The untold goals of potatoes?
Device which allows one potato to revolve around another potato, 1969, by Sigmar Polke. The signs were very emphatic that you should not touch this display. So I took a picture from afar.

  1. Wow. I was trying to figure out how this worked until I went back and read “Potato Contraption” not “Potato Contraception.”
