Mouse statue


street art/ art in public space
The Die Sendung mit der Maus (programme with the mouse) has been broadcast on German television since 1971 and has been entertaining and educating younger viewers with its funny and factual stories ever since. The mouse is undoubtedly the figurehead of the television format, precisely because it separates and at the same time holds together the format of funny and factual stories in the short interludes. In this respect, he wordlessly assumes a moderating function within the programme.

To mark the 50th anniversary of perhaps the most famous mouse in the country, WDR donated a statue in 2021. Standing on the floor, the figure waves at us and provides an excellent photo motif for a visit to the mouse in Cologne.
