by Asta Gröting (* 1961 in Herford, Germany); From the series Berlin Fassaden; Silicone, jute; 373 x 373 x 10 cm; Israel Museum, Jerusalem, B19.0761
For her series ‘Berlin Fassaden’ artist Asta Gröting took moulds of entire facades of buildings in Berlin damaged during the last two weeks of the war in April 1945. Render, dirt, dust, moss, entire pieces of graffiti, all has been faithfully transferred to silicone. The work Mausoleum is a reference to the Dorotheenstädtischer Friedhof. Seeing the unusual negative form causes a change of perspective: you look out onto the world from inside the wall.
