A reference to Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, Charlotte Buff and Werther in the old town of Wetzlar.
In June 2015 the Werther Mural arised within seven days in Wetzlar. The picture focuses on Goethe, Lotte and the novel ”The Sorrows of Young Werther” with historical documents and artifacts. With the elements Goethe’s color circle extends in intense tones. The coated colored illustration of individual motifs is a controversial and contemporary interaction with the surrounding half-timbered buildings. The work is a contemporary interpretation of the history and brings together past and present.
The painting has a height of 5.5 meters and a length of almost 18 meters with a total size of 100 square meters. The project with an image in Neo Pop midst of protected historic old town of Wetzlar looks for an equal.
The art project was founded by the Hessian Ministry of Science and Art, the City and Industrial Museum Wetzlar, the town of Wetzlar and the Volksbank Mittelhessen. We thank all our supporters for the realization of the project.
Another thank goes to the supporters of the City and Industrial Museum Wetzlar for the good cooperation, also a thank you goes to the city´s cultural office, the building department and the bodies of the city Wetzlar, neighbors and citizens of Wetzlar, the actors Christopher Opel and Anne Neuburger for the Wether-Lotto-Fotoshooting, Lamar Dreuth for the photographic company of the project, and our whole team.
Reports and a photo album are coming soon on our website.
Informations of the Werther Mural Editionen are following in the next weeks.

The artist collective 3Steps
3Steps is a German-based contemporary artist collective between the twins Kai Harald Krieger and Uwe Harald Krieger and Joachim Pitt. The collective lives and workes in Gießen, Hessen, Germany. The works of 3Steps have developed from mural art, graffiti art and street art. The spray can is the central media of 3Steps. The collective paints huge images on facades and murals, as well as several kinds of paintable media in the studio. Bright colors and the reflection of a modern society express the intention of the three friends. In November 2014 3Steps received the “Kultur- und Kreativpilot Deutschland” (Cultural and Creative pilot of Germany) award by the Federal Republic of Germany. In 2015 they got a promotion of the Hessian Ministry of Science and Art.
