This strange thing on Graben is another example of art in public space: The installation "Humiliation" by the team of artists Clegg & Guttmann highlights public punishment - right into the eighteenth century, torture and executions were enacted in the public realm, open to everyone to see. On Graben a gibbet was to be found until the late seventeenth century. The installation combines the gibbet, the Spanish Coat and the Flute of Shame.
