"The work 'Ersatzproblem Beans' is an irony on the demands of the time of the 70s, which demanded that artistic activity should only be allowed if it was socio-politically relevant and if it was capable of changing society, improving it or being useful to it. Any activity that did not meet these requirements was defamed as an occupation with substitute problems. The 'substitute problem beans' is thus self-deprecating; I witnessed the accusation at the time without identifying myself with it. In many drawings that belong to the ensemble, I formulated the demanded claims as reproaches to myself." - Anna Oppermann

Anna Oppermann, (1940–1993) is a key figure of the German Conceptual Art and Post-Conceptual Art. In the sixties, she developed her radical open and dialogical language. Her intricate assemblages of drawings, photographs and objects grew into large scale overboarding spacial installations for which the artist coined the phrase 'Ensemble'. Oppermann’s Ensembles are created through the accumulation and associative or analytical arrangement of several hundred individual parts: found, collected or created for the work.
