The Munich artist collective Department for public appearances modifies the equestrian statue of Otto I von Wittelsbach in front of the Bavarian State Chancellery. It sets the man from his horse and the horse from its pedestal.
Using Otto I. von Wittelsbach as an example, the department has broken down a traditional form of monument and created a collage that can be seen on posters in the city.
Due to its exemplary character, this intervention opens up a discussion process, offers starting points for communication and discussion and questions the effectiveness of exaltation as a cult strategy of appreciation and worship.
