Excerpt from the jury-statement:

Christian Mommertz, Executive Creative Director Europe, Spark44, Frankfurt

So what is anything but self-evident, to make it look self-evident, this year’s bronze work succeeds. And it does so in an extremely elegant and self-evident way. For it marries generations into a community of destiny, in which it connects independent press stories with each other by means of a sophisticated visual manipulation, lifting them onto one and the same scenic stage and thus insinuating a third story in our minds: That the social and political challenges of the present and the future affect everyone equally, because they can affect everyone equally. Without instructive finger pointing, without creative detours, without formulaic kitsch.
