Norbert Thiel (Berlin)

Stellwerk Thiel / Switch Tower Thiel

The artist Thiel freely interprets the subject of the Gerhart Hauptmann novel “Bahnwärter Thiel” (level-crossing keeper Thiel). The room features images of trains and gates, switch towers and train stations, mainly by night. Meanwhile you can see - but not hear – the real trains as they rush past the window: a thrill that’s definitely not just for train fans! The attentive observer will discover supernatural themes in Thiel’s paintings, too.
