Sigmar Polke assembles the original, 5.5 m long Leporello, which like his edition of unique photographs, also shows page elements of Goya's "Desastres". The Leporello was reproduced in full length in the entire print run of Parkett vol. 2. Photographs 2-4 show the display of the Leporello from vol. 2 and the original during Polke's major retrospective at MoMA, New York, in 2014. Photograph 5 shows an installation view of Polke's original Leporello in Parkett's exhibition at the Centre Pompidou, 1987.
