The Authorities of the former GDR ordered a monument to celebrate the heroes of marxist theory. The unheroic statue by Ludwig Engelhardt was placed in the middle of Berlin and soon became popular and still is, even after the unification of East and West Germany. The two 'founding fathers' were photographed over and over again, by tourists as well as by professionals, and so I wondered, if there still was an alternative way of doing the job. By strongly digital manipulation I ended up with a contour portrait. I also reduced the colors of the original photo and got, what at a first glance, might look like a black and white picture. But deliberately I left two tiny traces of color, a blue and a yellow one.
