Since 2004, a monument to historical change has stood in the middle of the city, not as an artefact of past events, but as a social sculpture dedicated to an abstract idea: historical change. Similar to the early photographs by the artist duo Clegg & Guttmann, it was created without a concrete mandate. The installation, which was actually only planned to be temporary, eventually found its place on Linienstraße behind the Volksbühne theatre. It was organised by the then young Kunstverein am Rosa-Luxemburg-Platz.

The method of using aesthetic experiences to raise public awareness seems more important today than ever. The renovation will make this essay on the history of public art and its causes more readable again. Prof Dr Helmut Draxler will speak at the re-inauguration, followed by a musical intervention conceived by Clegg & Guttmann.
