Solo shows (1995-1998)

A changing point in the artists career was the year 1989, when the Berlin Wall was falling starting the German re-unification. While the administratve re-unification was established within a few months, the re-unification of the people, however, who were living separated in two politically ideological systems for the long period of 40 years, is still not completed these days.

The artist, as the person of W.O.F Agricola, realized immediately the German Re-Unification as a chance to start a new type of artistic activities focussing on German history of the 20th century in most different ways.

This working phase, entitled “the German Re-Unification Project” is lasting from 9 November 1989 – 31 December 1998 – incorporating
two mayor projects – ARCHA Society – Archives & Reseach for Contemporary Humanis & Art – active between 1989-1998 – and the artistic memorial, entitled: ” A Living Memorial Spaces of Art – Memorial Project against the Forgetting & for Humanity” – active between 1995-1998, when a major part of the project was destroyed in an attack, a mad act of politically motivated vandalism.
