Otto Mindhoff: Technoid, 80er Jahre,
Kronenstraße , 68723Schwetzingen
With his sculpture Technoid, created in the mid-1980s, a central motif in Otto Mindhoff’s art production stepped into the third dimension. The monumental, highly stylised head had already emerged in various forms in his paintings and prints during the early 1960s. It exemplifies the encounter between humanity and technology, and their confrontation in everyday life. Rows of staggered heads are shown in machine-like constructions that convey the unavoidable helplessness that is felt in an increasingly technological world.
