The red couch worldwide
Horst Wackerbarth has been travelling around the world for more than one fourth of a century, orchestrating his red couch in front of sensational scenery. He’s placed the couch in different living environments and has photographed a wide range of people. To this day, 800 people from 52 countries have sat on the couch. Wackerbarth has brought his couch to metropolises in Europe, the rain forest in South America, the villages of Siberia and the icy lands of Alaska to portray people and their home, despite the fact that a couch is an epitome of privacy and personal space. His goal is to create a portrait and a gallery of humanity.
