Film: Die Söhne der großen Bärin (DEFA 1965)

Figurines from the GDR toy line brought the class struggle of the 1960s and 70s to living rooms and sandboxes. Inspired by Liselotte Welskopf-Henrich’s bestselling novels “Die Söhne der Großen Bärin” (The Sons of Great Bear), the artist duo S O N D E R has created a equestrian statue that functions as a sort of monument to capitalism in collapse: two gun-toting bandits on horseback going shopping.
