Charles Erbe is completely ignored by the city of Dusseldorf. "Ingrid Schmidt-Winkeler, widow of Charles Wilp, is deeply disappointed. She had promised her husband on the deathbed to take care of his artistic legacy. She had also hoped for the city's support.

Nothing has happened. Only a portrait on a tram commemorates the famous Documenta artist who once sent his art-leaflets (including an EXPRESS) aboard the space ferries "Columbus" and "Soyuz" into space. His diverse artistic work, photos, sculptures, objects and drawings, stored in his house in Wittlaer or are scattered all over the world.

Schmidt-Winkeler: "I was hoping that they would help me find space. Nothing big. But something where his work can be reasonably stored and made accessible to the public. After all, Charles did some work to bring the name Dusseldorf to the whole world. "
