In addition to the artistic concept, my contribution as a German is the experience with the silence in post-war Germany. The confrontation with crimes committed during the Nazi dictatorship took a long time and demanded an open discourse, necessary for a healing process in German society.
The spatial condensation through the cube and the free artistic arrangement of the sculptures resulted in the core of the planned monument.
With this cube, I take up central forms of my work as an artist. On the one hand the cube as a method to tackle spatial problems, as a means of our dealing with space and visible alterations of the landscape in the city, for example and their effects on surroundings and people. On the other hand the expression of thoughts, emotions, ideas, not in words but in images – at this point in the form of sculptures.
