ZWEI BETON-CADILLACS IN FORM DER NACKTEN MAJA
Although 'Zwei Betoncadillacs in Form der Nackten Maja' on close inspection forms a documentation of the realization of the sculpture of the same name by Wolf Vostell in the West Berlin of 1987, this period piece – at the time the work was inaugurated to celebrate the 750th anniversary of Berlin; in 2006 it was restored to its original form – can also be read as a recorded performance. The debit for that is the role of the onlookers who protest against the work (“Wasting tax money is no art”, “That kind of art here? No thank you”) but also the position of Vostell himself who as a real maestro directs his team and the works.
