"9.11 - The Triple Method"
net based art work consisting of three individual art works created by media artist Agricola de Cologne.
9.11. represents not only some odd numbers of a sequence but got its actual meaning through the terrorist attack which occurred 2001 in USA on 9.11. = 11 September, and it is declared as 'International Day of Peace' since many years.
Related to dates in general, 9.11. means in wide parts of Europe however = 9 November. 9 November became in Germany a symbol for the beginning of Holocaust, the so-called Night of Broken Glass. Most Jewish synagogues in Germany had been burned down and destroyed in one single night in an action of state terror. But 9 November is in Germany also the Memorial day for the Fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989 and the later re-unification of Germany, and in this way the liberation from another state terrorism (Communist regime).
Drawing the circle closer, 9.11. has become a very special meaning for the artist himself. On Friday 11 September 1998, a terrorist attack of right wing terrorists destroyed an essential part of his art working installed in a former Synagogue in South Western Germany. It had dramatic consequences on his physical and psychological existence, and changed the course of his life completely.
As a resume, one may state that 9.11. seems to be a magic date connected to terrorism through the times.
