Slawomir Elsner's (b. 1976) graphic engagement with two central paintings by artists of the Blue Rider circle is closely bound up with his own creative inquiry into why some works of art seem to be more important, more famous and widely known, than others. Who writes the histories of art; what is included in them and what is deliberately or inadvertently relegated to some other domain; who is the "star" of a collection, exhibition, or installation; and are these questions about works of art and their categorization in fact still relevant?
