In July 1987, a group calling itself “Stammtisch” orchestrated the installation of the Trabbi-Pyramide, (consisting of an East German Trabant emerging from a pyramid shaped block of concrete) in the vicinity of the Beton Cadillacs. A doll of Ronald Reagan sat in the driver’s seat, reading a copy of Soviet newspaper, Pravda next to a Gorbachev puppet in the passenger’s seat reading USA today.
