The untitled works of 1971 not only present Georg Karl Pfahler's conceptual idea of series in an apt manner, but also touch on his idea of an architecture-related art. Starting from Constructivism, he overcomes its calculating rationalism by including color as an experiential quality on the one hand and the character of an experimental arrangement, which is to be perceived as a whole and yet is also to have an effect in the individual - this seems to be fulfilled in this multiple, which is not completely preserved. In contrast to the mathematically based ordering principles of constructivist art, Pfahler plans without mathematical guarantee, so to speak. His feeling for color, which "touches people emotionally sensually directly," is too intense for that. But the connoisseur of Max Bense's aesthetics is less concerned with mere peinture than with the public effect of color, which ultimately led him to art in public space: "the conception, the spatial dispositions within my painting [led] me to want to make these spatial intentions more real. This consideration gave rise to the so-called color space objects," which "very quickly ... evolved into space as object."
