Take a look on it when roaming near Kassel's old train station. It's one of the traces left in the city by documents, 9th edition in particular. Made in 1992 by US artist Jonathan Borofsky.

This was part of the Documenta, and near the hotel I stayed in. I wasn't interested in the Documenta as a whole. I saw it, but it didn't cause me to think; it's not "beautiful"; and so I say, "Eh".

It's a art work remain from one of the past Dokumenta. It's beatiful and a great place to take pictures especially for social network. Free atraction in the city.

Jonothan Borofskys art works can be found at several places around the world - the man walking to the sky was originally situated in front of Fridericianum - usually the main venue for documenta. a peoples initiative collected money to keep the sculpture in Kassel.

We had seen this art online before heading to Kassel. IT is kind of fun to see. If you are at the in town train station, then you are right there.

Very interesting and it is just opposite a sculpture of a lady on a pool jump. (On the reiss hotel). Both of them correspond with each other.
