Space becomes an object, the object then turned back into space.
Until today nobody knows how to use this new space of the so called 'Neue Heimat' in Germany. How should the new collective identify with it, when it is not based on a natural coming into existence? What are its instructions for use?

With the black wooden object 'the deconstruction of grey', kopvol reflects on the black side of the reunited German population, the feelings of unease and dissatisfaction. These negative emotions occur at the level of everyday life, hardly noticeable for the eye of the visitor.
At the same time the object caricatures everyday life in New Germany and exposes it's a-normality as a potential space, which is strong, brave and far apart from the old myth of DDR grey.
