Yurupari – Stanza di Rheinsberg (Yurupari – Rheinsberg Room),” Lothar Baumgarten writes, “was initially shown in Düsseldorf in 1969. The title refers to my birthplace, Rheinsberg, a city in the Brandenburg region of East Germany. Reconfigured in relation to the new space, the work was presented in its current version for the second time in 1984, at the Castello di Rivoli. It alludes to the phenomenon of ‘Time’ in two ways: to historical time, through the dialogue it establishes with the architectural context in which it is located, and to the transitory nature of time, through the choice of materials employed. Unbound cobalt pigment, used to color the walls, gives expression to an intrinsic quality of the Tropics: their ephemeral transience
