Dusseldorf – Conflict Sculpture

This bronze sculpture is located on Mittelstraße in Dusseldorf and was designed by Karl-Henning Seemann (a German artist born in 1934, who is still alive). The English translation of the sculpture’s name is something like ‘Conflict’ or ‘Controversy’.

It’s not a great photo, but I think from memory there was someone standing to the right-hand side of the fatter figure and I couldn’t be bothered waiting for them to move. The sculpture was placed here in 1976 and it’s a series which represent a local traditional, a discussion between a Gôg (an inhabitant of the old town of Tübungen) and a Professor (of Tübingen university).
