For the first time a single volume assembles a work complex from the oeuvre of Gabriela von Habsburg which has not been shown before: the sculptures, some of them made of metal or stone in different formats and some of them immovable, introduce the artist's works in the public space that are scattered across the United States and throughout Europe. Together with lithographs, photos of the artist working on her artworks and of her studio round out this exquisite volume. Since earliest times the performing arts have always been one of the most important forms of expression for mankind. With her sculptures Gabriela von Habsburg goes new ways in the politicisation of aesthetics, uniting her work as ambassador, politician and creative artist. Her many years as an ambassador for the Republic of Georgia in Berlin are reflected in the choice of the fall of the Iron Curtain as a subject in the execution of her unusual sculpture monument at Sopron and the Rose Monument of Tbilisi, an act of homage to the bloodless revolution there. A profound and exclusive glimpse into the committed work of a sculptor.
