Aesthetics of Failure

The work "Aesthetics of Failure" is a search for traces of manifest, mostly architectural failures that man leaves behind in the landscape. Buildings and structures that do not (or no longer) fulfil their original or at least intended function become monuments of failure, which in their conversion or abandonment possess a strangely peculiar aesthetic. The work questions the negative understanding of failure that is widespread in German culture by examining the ambivalent relation of success and failure.
