48 sycamore trees on "Paulsplatz" symbolize the democratic idea with thoughts from urban society.
Anyone who was out and about in Frankfurt in the weeks leading up to the Paulskirchen Festival will probably have noticed the colorful quotes on billboards. They come from the middle of society, from Frankfurt citizens expressing their thoughts on the subject of democracy.
On Paulsplatz, the democratic idea will be given another public space during the Paulskirchenfest, during which Paulskirche will also be artfully staged. The quotes of the citizens decorate the 48 sycamore trees on Paulsplatz and show how colorful the urban society is - and what it has in common with democracy. In the darkness, St Paul's Church also shines in a new light and is illuminated by a projection. Texts by the artist duo Katharina Zorn and Jasna Fritzi Bauer can be read on it. Since 2018, the visual merchandising designer and the multiple award-winning actress have been working as writers, creating multimedia artworks together that include haptic installations as well as audio and video installations.
Through their light installations at St Paul's Church, the two artists create the media bridge to the evening production on the banks of the Main.
