Falco Square with the Falco monument by Katrin Plavčak

In June 2018, the Falco sculpture “Is the comet coming or is it too late” by Katrin Plavčak was unveiled in Gansbach . The starting point for the idea for the scene sculpture was a line of text from the song Nur mit dir from Falco's album Junge Roemer . The monument consists of a four-meter-high, black and silver-colored sculpture made of steel and a serpentinite from the Dunkelsteinerwald , which represents a comet . The memorial was erected on the new Falco-Platz by the municipality together with the state of Lower Austria and the Art in Public Space Initiative .
