The suitcase as an exhibition concept can be associated with Daniel Spoerri‘s Der Koffer (1961) and Marcel Duchamp‘s La Boîte-en-Valise (1938-1941), among others. Spoerri saw the suitcase as a symbol and means of transportation to collect and exhibit objects from the Nouveau réalisme group. Duchamp, on the other hand, used a box to gather all his works like a miniature, mobile museum. ‘37x21x21’ borrows from both approaches. The suitcase is a practical means of transportation as it ships art to exhibit from Vienna to New York and back. What also takes place is bartering, the oldest form of commerce that historically sustained communities. In this transcontinental exchange, artists trade art for art.
