Light installation at Siegestor: 19 FEB – 16 MAR 2020
Leopoldstraße 1, 80539 München
The neon installation DESIGN! or NO SIGN? was created exclusively for MCBW 2020. Artist Jan Kuck explored the meaning of design for the shaping of the future.
Design processes go far beyond creating aesthetic products. Successful design clearly makes a mark and delineates the future in multi-dimensional ways. This aspect of deliberate creation in particular is reflected in the installation and transferred into an oversized light signal – on a distinguished architectural monument featuring high-quality design. Since its reconstruction in 1958 the phrase above the relief reads “Dedicated to victory, destroyed by war, urging peace,” turning a war memorial into a peace memorial – the Siegestor (Victory Gate) also makes a clear mark!
