About this artwork

John Sparagana has been transforming mass-media materials for at least the past two decades. To create Der Spiegel 21–10–10, the artist selected sixteen identical pages from the October 21, 2010, issue of the Germanlanguage weekly news magazine. He then intentionally damaged the pages by rubbing, folding, and distressing their surfaces, before slicing the pages into strips and weaving them back together to re-form the single-page spread from the original magazine. Essentially, Sparagana manually enlarged the image while keeping its proportions equal to the original.
