Panzerwurst was created specially for Made in China. It consists of two interlocked forms: a stylized silhouette of a tank and a sausage. The manner they are depicted recalls a cartoon or a children´s drawing. In the context of current wars the represented objects act as symbols. Their combination evokes direct but multilayered associations.

Olga visits her Mother is a reproduction of a pre-war piece by Wolfgang as a multiple, when art was still easy and unmonumental. Its elements create a lightweight structure under tension that connects walls and ceilings of every possible building: A broomstick supports a plastic cup with an elastic belt. Repeating the work is like a self-empowerment exercise that everybody could do at home.
