The Young King...

Please note: The project "The Young King ..." in the New Old Town has been canceled. The construction site does not allow an installation and the opening of the old town for visitors at the moment. It is planned to complete the artwork until the opening of the old town and to present it then.

A project by Achim Mohné for the DomRömer GmbH

The Krönungsweg (Coronation Route), visible through the sandstone pergola, marks the heart of Frankfurt's new Old Town. Achim Mohné's work marks the historically-significant coronation route of Frankfurt’s new Old Town with a neon sign. Goethe himself, as a youth, had witnessed the coronation of Joseph II as emperor and described it in his "Poetry and Truth", a complete quote from which will be installed in neon lettering along a 35 meter-length of the pergola. At first glance, the three-dimensional design of the typeface as a continuous line makes it appear as a pure light sculpture. Semantically, however, the neon only reveals itself to visitors once they follow the coronation path and the quote becomes legible in its entirety. The ceremonial act of imperial coronation becomes more plausible and brings historical events back into the present.
