Photographer's Note

Siegessäule. This Statue of Victory stays in the centre of 5 streets, was built in 1873 after the war and is a proud of Germans. After the Second World War it was a famous background for Russian soldiers for photographing.

The statue from inside demonstrates a hidden German protest against their own "Ordnung" - the system and laws. All the walls are full with graffitti, and everywhere are signs like "these building is under video control. Any damage will be taken on the film". This is a neverending circle - the graffitiis get more, the signs will grow, the graffittis will be brighter and more of course, the signs are getting more...

Maybe i'm wrong and children have just not enough from paper and colour pens ;)
