Remax on: Marcel Broodthaers: Musée d’Art Moderne, Département des Aigles, Section XIXème Siècle, Brussels, September 1968. In 1972 Marcel Broodthaers exhibited Musée d'Art Moderne, Département des Aigles, Section des Figures (Der Adler vom Oligozan bis Heute). This installation housed over 300 representations of eagles from art history and popular culture classified in a pseudo-museological manner—undermining both the mythology of the eagle and the power of the museum. The artifacts were accompanied by numbered labels declaring, "This is not a work of art," in English, French, and German.
