Giesing has a new eye-catcher.
A huge painting is now emblazoned on a house facade - with a special message.
Giesing is beaming.
Because since Friday the quarter has had a new eye-catcher - with a special message.
A house facade is painted on the corner of Chiemgaustraße and St.-Quirin-Straße.
There an oversized rainbow flower with a glowing bloom seems to meet you.
Viewed from a distance, the picture is a whole.
Anyone who approaches the painting will notice that there are many details in it.
The art project “Permanus” is a total work of art made up of dozen individual stories.
They come from the residents of Lebenshilfe Munich and their neighbors.
The mural has a very specific message
Martin Blumöhr explains the message.
He is an artist and led the project, on which over 60 people were involved.
"In times when we isolate ourselves more and more and turn away from each other, it is directly about creating a symbol of community and a shining symbol for the Basic Law," says Blumöhr.
True to paragraph one: Human dignity is inviolable.

With the painting, Lebenshilfe has given itself and the public a gift. She turned 60 last year, but couldn't celebrate due to the corona. That has now been made up for. “The art project is an example of inclusive, artistic togetherness and has a radiant power to the outside world,” says Andrea Siemen, chairwoman of the supervisory board of Lebenshilfe. She looks back: the original parents' association with twelve people now has over 1000 members and over 500 employees. "We are still here as an institution that accompanies and supports people with intellectual disabilities as required - just like their relatives," says Siemen. With a whole wall as a symbol.
