This work was in response to an invitation to the International Paper Art Biennial in the Leopold-Hösch-Museum in Düren in 1994.
Each of the invited artists designed one room with paper. In the central domed hall Horst Gläsker built a small dome from glued layers of paper and cut faces into it with scalpels and hollow punches.
The faces were then projected onto the museum's large dome with a strong halogen lamp. The paper dome was installed on 5-meter high cardboard tubes.
"Horst Gläsker always wants the stories he tells to be 'fabulous', that is to say, tending towards the wittily satirical and not all that moralizing in tone.
Gläsker always seeks to design space, for it is only space that includes both the artist and the viewer as a matter of course, as an integral part of a world picture...
Horst Gläsker likes to undermine the unambiguous, but without wishing to inhibit its meaning. Possibilities are more important to him than realities.
It is the immaterial part of his dome in the staircase of the museum, for example, that actually comes closest to reality: the projection."
