Artwork series about the amusement park Germendorf on the out skirts of Berlin
The picture shows a scenery in the zoo and amusement park Germendorf on the out skirts of Berlin. The area looks like a dying entertainment area filled up with plastic non-life atmosphere. The carnival rides are accompainied by toys with broken display screens and 21st century sadness. The amusement park's hours of operation are still regular, but the theme park owners do not invest money and time to repair or replace broken items. One freelance showman stands next to the rotten playground equipment and offers Bubble Activities for Kids. He recites cynical self-made poems about real estate bubbles and filter bubbles in our media world. The children are focused on the soap bubbles. For them they are still a symbol for dreaming and childhood fairytale fantasies. Watching him creating bubbles could be used as a profound existential meditation. Entertainment venues like Germendorf are supposed to be the scene of some happy family memories, but now, a sense of abandonment permeates the once-lively place.
