About the Work

The stupefying banality of this commuter station just outside Munich and the obscene events which took place in the immediate vicinity, I find impossible to describe.
The mushroom roof of the station with its graffiti-covered central column on which 'Auslander Raus' (foreigners out) is scrawled, is my attempt to metamorphose holocaust past, present and future.

″I still use the same approach to my work: I get an idea, think of the title and then make the work. So not much has changed since 1964″
