Jay Gard - We Built this City

At the center of the exhibition "We Built This City" is the almost four-meter-high sculpture "Sanssouci (Georg Wenzeslaus von Knobelsdorff, Sanssouci Palace)" originally designed by Jay Gard for the Potsdam urban space. It was shown for the first time from September 4th to 19th, 2020 as part of the Transformale around the “Rechenzentrum Kunst- und Kreativhaus Potsdam”, where it contrasts with the architecture of the 1950s (“Ostmoderne”) and the reconstructive and restorative tendencies of the more recent architecture. Now it stands in the interior of a classical modern monument and deals with questions of aesthetic and social appropriation.
