Klaus Weber /// The Nonument
Collective City Observatory, 38 Calton Hill, Edinburgh, EH7 5AA
Affinity and Allusion
Liebe Freunde und Kunstinteressierte, wir laden Sie herzlich zu der Ausstellung ein.
Klaus Weber’s work is often about making the impossible possible, creating ruptures in what we perceive and, in so doing, calling our belief systems into question. For the opening of Collective, Klaus has created a new work inspired by the rich history of realised and failed monuments on Calton Hill. Klaus coined the phrase Nonument to describe proposals for public works he has developed in the past and for the future, dealing with questions of ‘denkmal’ (monument). For this exhibition Klaus will present Fagman, a maquette for a monument for contemporary Edinburgh, intended as a counter point to the existing patriarchal monuments on Calton Hill.
