Franz West, Warum ist etwas und nicht nichts?, Stronsdorf, 1997/2022, (c) Joanna Pianka

Franz West

sculpture on the outskirts of stronsdorf

The sculpture positioned in a field and entitled 'Warum ist etwas und nicht nichts' (why is something and not nothing) is described by Franz West as "not an autonomous sculpture but a 'monument' in an etymological sense that relates to this site." It was welded together out of sheet-steel and coated with pink lacquer.

The object was dismantled in 2016 and could be reinstalled after extensive restoration in may 2022.
