For many years, Georg Korner was head of sculptural work for the reconstruction of the Berlin Palace. “Transit” shows the artist at work on another long term project. This installation, named after Anna Seghers’s novel, gathers more than thousand clay figures on an inclined plane – an anonymous crowd at first glimpse, from which figures with individual traits emerge only gradually. After “Geschichtsstille”, a kaleidoscope of slivers of history.
