Karl-Heinz Klopf


Location: Social Pedagogical Center, Salzburg / Austria
Completion: 1998
(in co-operation with Sigrid Kurz)


Kurz and Klopf reacted to a rather restricted spatial situation in the new corridor of the Social Pedagogical Center in Salzburg with an expansive gesture. The intervention consists of a translucent privacy screen set up between stairs and passage. A larger-than-life, smiling emoticon was applied as a silk-screen.
