The 955,000 microsite was produced from research by Henrike Buescher while she was an intern at the Gallery in 2012. In the course of her work she sorted, catalogued and scanned hundreds of negatives, prints and catalogue pages. In addition she conducted extensive researched and consultation with artists and staff who were participants or familiar with the exhibition. Last, but not least, she designed and produced this microsite to make this documentation and research available to the public. We are grateful to Henrike for her considerable labours and expertise, and her notable contribution to this field of research.
