Domestic means both internal and domestic. This ambiguity also translates into the work where diplomatic and domestic elements go hand in hand. It produces a for Schscht typically unlikely image.
The polished marble and the gleaming flagpoles contrast starkly with the flags that can literally be labeled as art trouvé: they are remnants of material, found in the studio, that evoke changing domestic atmospheres.
The flags contain many layers: this work is a sincere ode to autonomous thought and action. Political and social depolarisation boomed a lot in the 1960s and provided a huge boost in terms of emancipation. At the same time, it also produced an increasingly individualistic society, a trend that is still continuing, with self-interest often taking precedence over common interest. Compare the installation to the ever-growing fences around homes. But also, this alienating installation is a beautiful ode to the everyday, to what is already there.
