Loriot: Sculpture "Men on the Race Track", Version in Artificial Casting

Especially at ars mundi: the sketch of Loriot as a sculpture.

The comedian genius Loriot had models and gave them high estimation in his works: "On the Race Track" is a film adaptation of a popular radio sketch, which represents the collisions of a self-titled expert and the ignorant laymen. The author was a comic Wilhelm Bendow who created his first texts in 1925 when he worked on the vinyl record with Paul Morgan. He turned back to this work in 1946 with Franz Otto Krueger.
This subsequent live recording in radio saved the sketch in recent times and has been published at the beginning of the 70s again on vinyl, but it became popular among large audience only thanks to animated Loriot drawings. A quote from it has become a classic saying since the first television presentation. The phrase "Where are you going" evokes the memories of the inimitable voice of Bendow as well as artistic interpretation of the characters by Loriot within the representatives of different generations.

Loriot, the "grand seigneur" of the German humor was famous for numerous talents. A clever, ironically smiling observer which opens our eyes to the absurdities of the everyday life. This considers the adapted sketch "On the Race Track". Each of the popular phrases of Bendow could have been created by Loriot. Loriot often came back to the topic of failed communication between two, not even malicious, but merely prejudiced in narrow perspectives, status or simple ignorance, people. His theme was the misunderstanding and its consequences. The Germans were able to recognize themselves in all these grim times, bizarre, but always loveable characters designed without being offended. On the contrary, they love the author for his ability to watch them so accurately.

Vicco von Bulow alias Loriot was without a doubt the "grand master" of German humour. His sketches are frequently knows every word by heart (the English "by heart" it hits better ...), and on which field he has always moved - as a cartoonist, as a humourist, as an actor and director - he's always special, memorable done.

If one asks what the reason of this success, so it is nearing on the quote of Vicco by Bulow: "comic, as I understand it, has to do with self-irony, otherwise something is missing. You must involve yourself. "That's in all his works noticeably, and because this is so, his wit is never belittling, hurtful never - at the end Loriot went even very affectionate with the figures of his aptly parodies and accurately observed unmasking of petty-bourgeois narrow-mindedness to. humour, so we could formulate is a sharp dagger for fierce clashes, but a fine scalpel, which ultimately works to the healing of the world with each cut with Loriot.
