Conveyor belts, steel, archive lamps,
Concrete rubble of the Technical City Hall Frankfurt am Main
"Max Brück's work deals with the question of how collective memory is created and what material can make this visible. What remains when a city and life in it changes? What shapes and how does the identity of a city change? For the installation Rückbau at the Frankfurter Kunstverein, Brück looked at the immediate surroundings of the exhibition space, the New Frankfurt Old Town. Brück's research focused on the Technical Town Hall, a brutalist building from the 1970s that adjoined the Frankfurter Kunstverein. For the installation, concrete remains from the demolished building were retrieved from a depot and placed in a circuit of conveyor belts. "
