Johannes Wohnseifer often uses the automobile as a means of transport for his work, which is interwoven with history. In the work "Class & Class Conflict (Distinction)" from 2020, he unfolds a Mercedes G-Class into several parts The G Wagon has been built for over 40 years, and the outer shell has hardly changed at all during this time. "But very much its sociological and historical charges," says Wohnseifer. Due to the long construction period, "it has gone through many different social phases and has also been subject to appropriation". Designed for the military, later used mainly in agriculture and today mostly converted into a luxury lifestyle object. "At the G, elements of German history can be shown in a wonderfully associative way".
