Die Currywurst

An unusual story that begins in Danzig, Riga and Königsberg, through Wladiwostock, then Manchuria, all the way to China and Hiroshima, and back to Stuttgarterplatz in Berlin, at the 1. Currywurststand. This story takes place in the timeframe of 1882 until the 4th of September, 1990.

For Wolfgang Nieblich the discourse with the material, form, structure, production, intellectual content, function, and versatile usage of books is the core of his artistic expression- and that with impressive complexity.  Through his dialectic search for symbolic reference, formal pleasure of experimenting, and multi-leveled, interchangeable associations between the different dimensions of books find expression.
