Long Description:
Plaque onsite states:
GRANDE DISCO
Our life today is one of crisis...of movement...of tension. We do not know what our world will become. I try to say something about this uncertainty in my work. I try to communicate a sense of vitality and connection with the movement of life today...and to be a part of its movement.
The social challenge of art today, in my opinion, is to start a dialogue with the people.
I hope that is what happens here with the Grande Disco.
