Steady as the earth, 2011, photographic print, bricks split in half

On December 1, 1968 a memorial to Gichin Funakoshi, founder of Karate-Do was erected in Kamakura. Monument features the second of Funakoshi's Twenty Precepts: "There is no first attack in karate." In 1995 Budo Haus Do-Kai-Dojo eV. was founded in Berlin. Pamphlet advertising "Karate 50+" senior adults courses contains inter alia a poem by Funakoshi, where karate is referred to as bestaendig wie die Erde—steady as the earth.

Work was exhibited at Second Watch Factory, Moscow one day before the scheduled demolition of the structure.
