Mehrdad Zaeri / Christina Laube: „Ahnen, Urahnen“,
Hildastraße , 68723Schwetzingen
Early in summer 2019, a brand new mural was painted on the facade of the gymnasium of a private secondary school. It was made by Mehrdad Zaeri and Christina Laube, who for several years have worked at home and abroad painting murals under the name “Duo Sourati”. The narrative, poetic vein typical of this author and book illustrator team can now be seen in the mural, which bears the title Ancestors and Antecedents. A girl is shown sending floral greetings to the souls of the past and the newly departed. The two artists have taken inspiration from the location, where past (the palace gardens opposite), present, and future (school) converge.
