the ADN Guardhouse is still on display at 5900 Wilshire Boulevard, Los Angeles, CA 90036
Sonya Schönberger’s work KEY DELIVERY for the ADN Pförtnerhaus symbolically reflects
the power and influence of the gatekeeper within a system of absolute control.
Simultaneously, her installation visualizes the loss of power and control following the
disintegration of a political system. Placed in the East German ADN Guardhouse in
Los Angeles at 5900 Wilshire Boulevard, the work consists of some 2,000 keys from the
barracks of the People`s Police (Volkspolizei). There is no one left to handle them.
As decontextualized as their container, the keys are remnants of a past they are not able to disclose.
