Thomas Demand

Kreuzung, 2004

For Kreuzung, Thomas Demand built a cardboard reconstruction of a crossroads in Budapest, the location where the first Soviet Union tanks entered the city during the Hungarian revolution of 1956. The meticulously crafted, unpopulated construction is pervaded by a strangely unsettling atmosphere, like a hyper-realistic stage set abandoned after a theatrical performance.
