Long Description:
"The History of Koblenz in 10 pictures

The Koblenz

History column

Jürgen Weber recounts the 2000 year old history of the settlement of Koblenz from Roman times until the present day in ten pictures.

The artist does this not only byy means of an accentuated selection of happenings, but also pictorially in a specifically philosophical interpratation. He doesn't let history climb in a rising spiral (as for instance the famous Trajan's Column in Rome) but arranges it by episodes, one on the top of the other, sometimes divides by layers of destruction. History for him is not a progressive, "Improving" development, but is always a new beginning wich emanates mostly from the demolished past on wich it is based, but is essentially soemthing different.

The History Column is a present of Rhineland-Palatinate to the town of Koblenz for it's 2000th anniversary in 1992. It was completed in 2000.
