Deserter Monument, Hamburg

The artist Volker Lang created the memorial for deserters in Hamburg, which was erected in 2015 between the so-called “76′ war memorial” and the “Memorial against War” by Alfred Hrdlicka.

The shadows guided our light design: they not only fall on the folded concrete wall of the memorial itself, but overlay the massive block of the “deserteur memorial”.
