"Love saves life / Love doesn't last forever" 1999

Maurizio Cattelan

animalpreparation/-skeletons in life size

One can see the Bremen Town Musicians in two designs in front of the “Theatre Bremen” at the “Goetheplatz”. Two glass cases, positioned parallel to each other, contain the Bremen Town Musicians, one as an animal preparation one as skeletons.

So, the city of Bremen presents two visual illustrations of the fairytale by the brothers Grimm in public: On one hand, there are the Bremen Town Musicians, made out of bronze by Gerhard Marcks behind of the town hall, on the other hand there are the Bremen Town Musicians as animal preparations by Italian artist Maurizio Cattelan in front of the “Theatre Bremen”.
