Standpunkt (2005)

Art Project „Point of View“

A project by Maria Müller

With this art project I take position to the place
Mannheim – Ludwigshafen - Heidelberg, triangle Rhein – Neckar.
I place myself on top of the skyscrapers of Mannheim, Ludwigshafen and Heidelberg.
It is the skyscrapers which are coining the view of the city decisively and I take position referring to it.
I am interpreting the view of the city, the image as such.
The image that I have from my position.

The Image

A woman
in a red dress
standing on a ladder
on the roof of a skyscraper.

She looks towards the sky.

Project description

I will stand for one full hour on a ladder in a red dress
on a skyscraper, looking to the sky.
This action will be performed on top of several skyscrapers.
All will be documented photographically.


Through an announcement in the newspapers Meier, Mannheimer Morgen etc., people in Mannheim and Ludwigshafen will be addressed to take part in this project. On a fixed time they should photograph “the woman in the red dress on the ladder”. From their point of view.
