Inkjet print, registration, car key

After the German reunification in 1990, on February 26th, 1991, a linden tree was planted at the exact new geographical center of Germany. In the morning of April 15, 2013 the police were informed that a black Volkswagen Golf that had apparently crashed into the tree.
This accident at the center of Germany actually never happened, it is a story told through police reports and media coverage. They are documents of fictional happenings. These interpreta- tions lie at the core of the art work.
The accident-sculpture was installed during the night by Julius von Bismarck with a prepared car.
