Albrecht Schäfers VERKEHRSSCHILD #6, 2007 was installed in 2008 as part of Schäfer’s exhibition at KW. The Verkehrsschilder [traffic signs] are part of a group of works in which everyday materials and objects change their inner logic, using only the original materials at hand to produce a new meaning. The sign’s rotation can also be seen as an analogy of the movement and acceleration of traffic.
