Edward Kienholzs life-size tableau ÒFive Car StudÓ (1969Ð72) depicts four automobiles and a pickup truck, arranged on a dirt floor in a dark room with their headlights illuminating a shocking scene: a group of white men exacting their gruesome ÒpunishmentÓ on an African American man. ÒFive Car StudÓ is a harsh reminder of a shameful part of our history whose traces still linger. It was seen only in Germany in 1972 and has since remained in storage in Japan for almost 40 years.
