The project Luftschloss is the result of the examination of the fragmentation and incompletion of the space and the disappointed hopes for permanence and wholeness. The installation is 2300 m3 in size and is divided into four phases; showing different stages of transformation. Using the imagery of a construction site, the object receives a dynamic form and becomes a transitional work whose presence already contains its own absence.


The three-dimensional forms within the scaffolding are changed periodically so that the object is continuously in an in-between state. The observer is left with the growing realization that the transitional form is the final gestalt of the object. The project becomes cloud and castle at the same time.
The installation is one of the price winners of the temporary art competition “Helle Mitte” and is supported by the joined federal and state program “Stadtumbau Ost”.
