KREUZ WEG

an installation by Mia Florentine Weiss

To mark the 100th anniversary of the Treaty of Versailles, the Berlin artist Mia Florentine Weiss is transforming the nave of St Nicholas' Church into a universal "Way of the Cross".

This installation presents a giant cross as a reflection on the consequences of a war where German soldiers went to fight "for God" as well as a reflection on the effects of the subsequent "peace". The artist uses this material as a way to make connections with current debates about the unity of Europe.

Cultural Identity and Encounter

The physical experience of this installation confronts visitors with questions about their own cultural identity. At the same time, it generates direct encounters and new perspectives.

The stones on which the cross symbolically lies have been made of soil that the artist collected on a performative journey through all 47 European countries. The digital platform #LOVEUROPE offers a documentation of this performance.
