Decades after the fall of the Berlin Wall, the QR sculpture “Die deutsche Einheit (The German Unity)”, created in 2009, deals with the subject of German reunification and the existence of still different perspectives on this historical event. In the upper area of ​​the stylized border post there is a spherical cloud made up of 178 elements, which serves as a symbol for society. There are groups in it as well as solitaires, some elements are in the center of the group, others on its outer edges. But only together do they fulfill one function: The formation of two nested QR codes. Depending on the spatial position of the observer, they can be read as “East” and “West”. The sculpture shows that the view of German reunification still differs, depending on the point of view or geographical position of the subject.
