Stadtmuseum Berlin Foundation and Curator Paul Spies present: KREUZ WEG - an installation as a European journey by Mia Florentine Weiss
The opening of the new sculpture "LOVE HATE" took place on Saturday 13 July in the Gorky Park, Moscow. It was presented by Mia Florentina Weiss, the artist and author of the art object. The sculpture is an ambigram - a word that combines two different readings and concepts. In this case it is "love" and "hate" that are read from different sides. The artist's work represents the unity of opposites and forces the viewer to look at the juxtaposition of these feelings in a new way. The comparison of the two extremes will be a leitmotif of the performances of young poets and musicians of the capital at the Carnival "Ambivalence". It takes place on the same day to celebrate the discovery of an unusual sculpture.
Since May 2019, several LOVE HATE sculptures by Mia Florentine Weiss have been travelling as ambassadors through various cities in Germany and Europe in support of democracy and humanism in order to strengthen the European idea according to the maxim MAKE LOVE NOT HATE!

In many respects the artist’s performance deconstructs the premises of the now legendary exhibition of contemporary art. The theme of the 13th Documenta in Kassel was “Collapse and Recovery”.

Africa—the cradle of our evolution—can also be thought of as the womb that gave birth to the human species.
The womb has always been a symbol of all-encompassing love and security, and a symbolic contrast to being cast out of the womb and left defenceless...
The idea of resurrecting the fine art of letter writing arose through her communication with her pen-friend and fellow artist Jonathan Meese. Weiss and Meese have maintained their platonic affair for years, and Weiss’s letters provide the basis for her “Love Letters” series.
