“Ash heap of history?-II.” Vienna 2010

Pictures, which I – like every former citizen of the Eastern Bloc – „met“ always and everywhere: in school, in boarding school, in official public buildings… pictures, whose content never interested me and were never explained to me....

Soap opera What, wherefore, why Delighted I look at the delivered sculpture: ‘antique’, an original antique. Such a thing is usually recovered near my home from the bottom of the Black Sea.
