Holy jesus. The pages keep on going! 1000 collages!

I am going home to tell my collaging boyfriend he's a total slacker.

I worry that the museum will be attacked by a deconstructionist bearing a pair of dull scissors.

I like this statement from their Who We Are page:
It is "the true" questioning which is the essence of a scientific work, with the variation of all a priori and in particular accepting the idea that the History of the Art of the XX [20th century] is not foreclosed.
It reminds me of some questions posed by Colin Rowe. Paraphrasing:

Is it reasonable to recognize that the great revolutions in thought and the resultant visual discoveries from the opening years of the 20th century are in many senses still largely unexplained?

Rather than assume intrinsic change as the prerogative of every generation, is it more useful to recognize that certain changes are so enormous as to impose directives which cannot be resolved in any individual life?

Are the plastic and spatial inventions of the early 20th century as eloquent, flexible and robust now as they were, and if so, why is innovation overvalued at the expense of a more thorough exploration of these discoveries?
