visual notes from everyday life

Karl Hugo Schmölz (1917-1986) portrayed the post-war architecture, during the so-called economic miracle, the “Wirtschaftswunder”. With his pictures he showed a vision of a better future and closed the gap between August Sander and Bernd and Hilla Becher.

Brückner & Brückner - Meeting point at the German-Czech border, Bärnau 2000. A small landmark on the predominantly untouched landscape, the structure resembles a fragment of a former building; the skeleton of a mining support wall so common in the area, the first level of a historic stone house, or the borders of a early farm. Alternating layers of crushed granite concrete and sandwiched laminated glass panels create a common texture, but allow the structure to slowly dissolve as it rises. Natural light passes through the glass, and from within a slight blue tint cast offers a meditative space for people wondering the area. Via, photos (C) André Mühling, Siegfried Wameser.
