Rehformation

Who says the German's don't have a sense of humour?

Well not me; some of their comedians and sketch shows are actually quite funny. But, it is an impression much prevalent outside the German-speaking world, so I present to you a visual pun by the artist Robert Verch in an installation in the grounds of  St Mary's church where Martin Luther's wife Katharina von Bora is buried ... Rehformation!


(to understand this, note that Torgau is an important town in the history of the Protestant Reformation, and a roe deer is in German ein Reh).


The artist Robert Verch's explanation of the installation (in German) can be found here.
