         A lady in front of a monument which shows a couple, Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels -
         the two philosophers and historians who spent their time working, socializing and
         thinking up ways to make everything better. This sculpture group belongs to a park
         which was constructed back in the days of a socialist GDR nearby the Alexanderplatz
         in Berlin. Whereas the sculpture once adorned the centre of the plaza, the philosophers
         have since been pushed to the side to make room for further developments.
         Marx receives a visitor, a lady, possibly a lady from the East of Berlin who has accumulated
         a varied range of experiences in the course of her life, working during the times of Socialism,
         deeply convinced that people could live well and above all fair.
         Now she's standing in front of him, in conversation with him. Does she approach him gently,
         does she herself find solace in speaking to him? Is it a reflection of our contemporary society
         in comparison to the ambitious ideas of a grand philosophy?
         A deeply moving moment of meditation.  (Heike Lydia Gruess, 2012)
