if you have seen the film “the sky over berlin” with the great bruno ganz in the leading role, you know the work of kiddy citny. the angel (b.ganz) falls from the sky and lands in front of the painted berlin wall. the “kings and queens”, 3.6 m high heads that citny and thierry noir made world famous after the fall of the berlin wall, was an attempt to “enclose east berlin with art” in 1985. the concrete-heavy picture beams with his paintings ended up in international art collections – including the moma in new york. citny’s hearts were interpreted as a symbol of the new unity. 45 wall segments were auctioned off in monaco in 1990, organised by the state, with the rating “particularly valuable” and with the names of the two artists. from 28.02.2023, we will be presenting works by kiddy citny in innsbruck for the second time. the exhibitions will be expanded by overpaintings of photographs by the already deceased photographer roger fritz, also known for his “icons of the 20th century”.
