Annotation

Sinsheim in 2011 was the venue for the FIFA Women's World Cup. As part of the World Cup cultural program the five ordinary people - including a female football player with a fan - in front of the Volksbank Kraichgau were inaugurated.

Alltagsmenschen - Everyday People

From Christel Lechner's website (tranlated):
Often a distant observer is amazed, imagining real people in front of him. But as you get closer, the life-size concrete sculptures develop their very own effect and dynamics: They are an artistic staging of the ordinary - touching snapshots that show what is commonly overlooked: the life lived in its purest form, unembellished and yet far from banality. ‚Äč Everyday people enliven the public space where they meet people: they sit on the bench, deep in conversation or simply together, enjoy the sun and remember the beauty of the moment. Their positioning underscores the claim to normality: the sculptures are approachable - they invite you to be surrounded, touched or simply looked at in peace.
