»A big jumble«

The contribution of the Saxon State and University Library Dresden (SLUB) at Neumarkt transforms the construction fences into a colourful, lively, three-dimensional installation.

Long, worm-like creatures wriggle and wind their way along and around the different sections of the construction fences, almost completely obscuring them.

The artist’s view on „a big jumble“:
"The colourful ‘Wurmgemenge’ (crowd of worms) abstractly depicts our heterogeneous society and its diversity.

It also stands for the squabbling and squirming in the dialogue around the concept of openness and tolerance. Colours and shapes paint a colourful, multifaceted picture of the future."


Let us all work together to foster a lasting discourse on the essential issues of our time. Libraries are places of democracy!
