Armin Forbig: Wir91,
Berliner Platz , 68723Schwetzingen
Armin Forbrig’s Wir91 relates directly to the political events of the year in which it was made. Forbrig wanted to “visualise the mounting problems of individual and social coalescence posed by the national unity of Germany.“ Using an unpolished marble block, the Chemnitz sculptor has created the illusion of a cube that has been cleaved in two, and then ineluctably bound together with hawsers to a purported unity. In retrospect, this prophetic vision of how a divided Germany might knit together has proved to be most realistic.
