Heres one example:
The innovative use of glass in the Kirchner museum is an example of a "paradoxical skin", "made of glass but with nothing to see except glass itself (the presence of insulation denies the implied transparency). The skin thus becomes a veil. It pretends to deny what its has to show, at the same time as pretending to show what it denies: in this way the veil itself becomes the object of desire."
