HAUS-RUCKER-CO // Berge
Berge in der Stadt (Mountains in the City)
Drawings 1973 – 1974
The theme addressed in this series of project drawings contrasts built urban mass with masses of a special character that are found in the landscape. Reconstructions and images of striking mountains and mountain peaks were placed, full size, in streets and squares, where their natural uniqueness was juxtaposed with artificially made objects. Mountains, the expression of the eternal and immutable, became movable and buildings, which supposedly can be removed, took on the role of the mountains. If mountains collapse, then a perception that regards them as fixed points in a permanent order also collapses.
