Observations at monuments of freedom
Freedom, one might say with Derrida, is an empty signifier. It can be filled with different meanings and is probably only available in á venir. In this context, monuments in public spaces are historically or ideally related to the concept of freedom. In drawing these monuments, observations were made regarding the surroundings and visitors. A reference to the concept of freedom is also established through interaction with them. These observations are processed in three short comics.

Statue of Roland, Bremen
