We are all so tired of the war! Fred George´s huge Peace Sign is going to be built in New York. What about Saarbrücken? At least once, Saarbrücken could have been ahead. "First Saarbrücken, then New York," could have been the headline one day.
It was not Fred George´s fault, if now, at best, it will happen the other way around.

Saarbrücker Zeitung, Kultur Regional April 13, 2008

Saarbrücken. Richard Borg, cultural-political speaker says he wants to support the art project by Fred George, ideologically at the very least. The worldwide threat that the stringency of natural resources like oil and water cause, are undeniable.
Borg says, "this threat has to be brought to the public mind more strongly."

"Fred George´s expressive American photography is full of allusions to history and present in art and politics." from Sebastian Schwarzenberger
