The Monument

Atelier Van Lieshout:
This bronze work with its clear relation to the classical equestrian monument, and thus the political-military, representative function of such a national monument, is in the colonnade courtyard on a critical-reflexive level with the equestrian statue of Frederick William IV of Prussia (Alexander Calandrelli, 1875-1886) before the Old National Gallery in relation. The work of the Atelier Van Lieshout formulates a clear commentary on the socio-political past of the German Reich in the years before the First World War. However, the figurative and pictorial language of the work can also be read as a warning gesture towards the present and the future.
