Public Face Julius von Bismarck, Benjamin Maus, Richard Wilhelmer

The first project, in November 2018, will involve the installation on Kibbelsteg Bridge of a sculpture entitled „Public Face“ by artists Julius von Bismarck, Benjamin Maus and Richard Wilhelmer. The seven-metre tall smiley face made of steel and neon tubes is designed to reflect people’s collective mood in the district by looking sad, angry, surprised – or indeed smiley. Sited on the oldest bridge connecting the city centre, the old warehouse district and HafenCity, the figure will be visible from afar to pedestrians, from the U-Bahn metro trains, and from street traffic, particularly in the evening hours and at night.
