Long Description:
EN
Entfaltung ("Unfolding") is a stainless chrome nickel steel sculpture by German sculptor Hans Uhlmann (1900-1975), put up in 1966 in front of the canteen of Bielefeld University of Applied Sciences at Bleichstrasse. It is about 2.70 meters tall and stands on a low concrete plinth. Hans Uhlmann was one of the artists who were debarred in the Nazi era because their work was considered to be "degenerate art". He also served a 1.5 year prison sentence in the 1930es for distributing Nazi-critical flyers.
