Schlagwort: Fritz Eisel Mosaik


E=mc2, Einstein’s theory of relativity, the starting point of my new work: woven realities. For the 50th anniversary of the Fritz Eisel Mosaik at Rechenzentrum Potsdam, a place with several historical time layers.

The works are a homage to Fritz Eisel’s mosaic „Der Mensch bezwingt den Kosmos“ (Man overcomes / conquers the cosmos). I show how the listed mosaic is connected to the former data centre of the GDR. In doing so, I want to explore the question of which layers of time are present in this place and who decides which layers of time may be present.

The works are digital photographs that have been cut and rewoven by hand. All 5 works are unique. Some of the works were shown for the first time in 2022 as part of the exhibition „Der Mensch verlinkt des Kosmos“ to mark the 50th anniversary of the mosaic.
