Aerial view of the University of Applied Sciences Landshut. For many people, the tall sculpture on campus was just called “the obelisk”. But behind the sloping stone there is a deeper meaning: the granite block comes from the quarries of the former Flossenbürg concentration camp. The artist Peter Weidl set it up on campus in 1992, tilted 10 degrees away from the barracks – years earlier a symbol of National Socialism. But steel cables keep the mighty stone in balance and prevent it from tipping over. In the same way, forces are needed that oppose the inhumane ideologies of the Nazi era – including a message of the artwork.
