9 Built on land acquired with profits from the fair, the museum emulated its mix of art and industrial production, as well as its architecture, with an iron structure that gave the building the early nickname “Brompton Boilers” (in reference to its resemblance to steam boilers, and ignoring the attempt to annex the Brompton site to the more fashionable neighborhood to the north by dubbing it South Kensington). ”10 During the twentieth century, however, the South Kensington, rechristened the Victoria and Albert, seemed to lose its way.

Moreover, the move to the museum was in many respects a beginning rather than an end, since Beuys continued to work on the installation after 1970, despite the death of the collector in 1977 and the subsequent sale of much of Ströher’s collection to another institution, and indeed until the artist’s own death in 1986. The Beuys Block is therefore something of a hybrid, in that it is both a retrospective assembly of individual objects (many of which are relics from actions) and a single installation that continued to evolve as long as the artist was alive to intervene.

The V&A, with its obviously hybrid collection, constitutes something of an anomaly, but one that helps draw attention to fissures within museums ostensibly devoted to the fine arts. A plaster fig leaf is one of the more amusing oddities in a collection notorious for its eclecticism. Its origins go back to 1857, the year the museum was founded, when an eighteen-foot-high plaster replica of Michelangelo’s David was presented by the grand duke of Tuscany to Queen Victoria. She sent it on to the museum, and upon viewing it there was so dismayed by the figure’s larger-than-life-sized nudity that measures had to be taken, in the form of a corresponding leaf, which was sculpted and kept on hand, ready to be hung from hooks implanted in the plaster David whenever she might visit.
