Waxman became known with the 60 wrd / min art critic project , which was exhibited several times in the USA and at dOCUMENTA (13) . “As part of dOCUMENTA (13), Waxman is available three days a week in an office that was set up in a prefabricated house in Karlsaue. Interested artists are invited to come by with their art in the original or in reproductions to have it appraised; whoever comes first is served first. In a kind of experiment that involves both speed and endurance, Waxman looks at the work for 25 minutes and then writes a 100 to 200 word review - and promises a considered and critical, but not necessarily positive, assessment. "The Reviews are then posted in the office.
