Anstaltshocker aus dem
Zuchthaus Luckau, 1952

What is this supposed to be? To explain, we must go way back. Guben was a hub of the German hat industry until recently. The nationalized hat factories had been designated the nationally-owned "United Hat Factories Guben" in 1952. Until production ceased, the name sat proudly enthroned in fluorescent letters on the roof of the factory. It was then taken down and ended up as scraps in one of the empty halls which would soon be the new home of the city administration and a museum. When searching for exhibits, the curators also came upon the remains of the illuminated sign. The whole thing would not have fit into the exhibition anyway. So, they representatively decided for the "dot on the i". Sometimes, a great story can make a small appearance in a museum and still stand for something significant.
