In October 2008, at the height of the economic crisis, the highest German statesman visits a University of Fine Arts.

In October 2008, at the height of the economic crisis, the highest German statesman visits a University of Fine Arts. There is talk of the arts and repeatedly of economy. It is also the attempt at communication under pressure. All those involved appear somewhat tense. Details are getting lost, simplifications occur. But underneath the rubble heap of text the movements of our time, our epoch become visible. Maybe something that in later days will be allocated as typical or characteristic for this time.
