Wie ich über Palermo nach Siena fuhr by Antje Schiffers

Antje Schiffers stopped at Messestadt Riem on her way from Berlin to Siena via Palermo. She asked residents how best to depict Messestadt and in December 2000, in return for board and lodging, painted a picture of the suburb with its cranes and new buildings. On her next visit she reported on the artistic journey she had just undertaken and presented the painting to the local inhabitants. Since then, it has travelled from one home to another.
