Together with Christa Wall I construct a fruit stand in front of the 5 kilometer long „Strength through Joy“-KdF building on the island of Rügen. We sell old and moldy fruits for high prices.

The work deals with the building‘s sale to investors who want to make the place a recreation area - modeled almost in the same way the Nazis planned to do. In front of the grey and deary environment, the candy colored fruit stand appears optrusive and exotic.
