‘shift’ brings together the interventions and works that I carried out in
Lichtenberg. Between ecology and prefabricated tower blocks, I found
locations that said something to me 25 years after the fall of the Berlin Wall.
I worked with found materials and met a number of friendly Lichtenberg
residents who allowed me to work and implement my ideas in their
surroundings. I would like to thank them for their help!
The beauty of the profane
One of my found objects was a head of cabbage that I came across one night
in the gutter in front of a greengrocer’s shop and which I took home with me.
It expressed its thanks to me in the form of its very own beauty for a number
of days until it finally gave my nose a signal that it wanted to be buried in
natural surroundings in the park across the street. The cabbage was able to
follow the festivities to mark the 25th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall
on television, but somehow things went downhill for it after that.
