What beautiful irony then that Frances Morris should begin her essay with the line: 'C hris Burden has always given museums a difficult time'. Airplane Factory Imagine the scene: the colossal Duveen Galleries have been emptied of heavy-duty steel I-beam sculptures, bronzes and marbles. Morris is right: Burden does give museums a difficult time.

Chris Burden (b. 1946 Boston, MA) attended Pomona College and received his MFA from the University of California in 1971. He had a retrospective exhibition (organized by Paul Schimmel) at the Newport Harbor Art Museum, Newport Beach, CA, in 1988 and at MAK-Austrian Museum of Applied Arts, Vienna, in 1996.

Major support is also provided by The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, Lonti Ebers and Bruce Flatt, Gagosian Gallery, and the National Endowment for the Arts.

At the end of the twentieth century ordinary people have little or no understanding of how the world we live in functions, how the food we eat is grown or how the objects we use are manufactured. For The Two-Minute Airplane Factory Burden has designed a factory-like assembly line which will construct model aeroplanes from paper, plastic and balsa-wood parts. The process, which is all on view, culminates in the launch of the planes, which fly up and circle round before descending to land on the gallery floor, to be collected and sold to visitors. Burden lays bare the principles of mass production in a way that is entertaining, ingenious and provocative.
