In Europe his work includes the Jewish School, Berlin; Lindenstrasse Memorial, Berlin (with E. Weizmann and M. Ullman); Jewish Centre in Duisburg, Germany; and Royal Dutch Military Police Complex, Schiphol Airport, Amsterdam. Hecker lives and works in Berlin.
A Short History Of Mankind, by Zvi Hecker - Over the last thousand years we humans have changed very little. We are still less than two meters tall, we reproduce as our ancestors have, and our diet has not changed considerably. Our psychological buildup has hardly changed at all. We believe in gods, we fear the unknown, and we search for protection and security. Our psyche is that of a caveman.
Though we ourselves haven’t changed, we have changed the world around us. We have produced many new toys “to please the time” as Brodsky calls it. These toys have brought mixed blessings and a lot of maintenance.
More maintenance is urgently needed as the planet Earth, impaired by the growing demands of an ever-increasing mankind, shows signs of fatigue. As there is no certainty that anything will actually be done in time, we might as well return to the caves, and this time probably for good.
