Möllner Fassade

Kiel 2020

Thies Warnke

The Installation by the designer Thies Warnke was created in September 2020 as a temporary memorial for the arson attack in 1992 in Mölln, Germany. The work represents the silhouette of the house that was set on fire in 1992 on a 1:1 scale. The work is intended to take a concrete position as a mediating interface that tells the stories of the victims. By mentioning the names on the LED board, the different stories become imaginable. Warnke does not show the viewer any stirring images but allows them to emerge from the little information provided, thus reminding us of the memory of the Möllner arson attack. Neele Marie Denker was responsible for the project management and assisted in the conceptual work and the attendant workshops and events.
