Die streng geometrische, kristallin anmutende Formgebung der Mo­ti­ve orientiert sich am Aufbau neuzeitlicher Befestigungsanlagen – teils Replikate der Grundrisse real existierender Festungen, teils Fes­tun­gen, die nie gebaut wurden, teils frei erfundene Entwürfe. The sharply geometrical, cristalline shape of the images is based on the construction of early modern fortresses – in part a repli­ca­ti­on of the floor plans of fortresses which actually existed, in part those of fortresses which were never built, in part newly inven­ted shapes.
Shown for the first time in the exhibition An Exchange with Sol Lewitt in Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art – MASS MoCA (23.1.–31.2.2011).
