Olaf Metzel's exhibition "Ich kann's nicht mehr hören" (I can’t hear it anymore) consists of 50 editions, published by galleries, art associations, museums, biennials, or by the artist himself from 1985 to 2022.

On display are, among others, “Bondstore Lockers,” created from an installation on the occasion of the Biennale Sydney 1990, or “Besiktas Jimnastik Külübü,” realized in collaboration with Christoph Daum during the Biennale Istanbul 1995.

The artist used bronze, concrete, aluminum, wood, metal, wax, and plastic for the sculptures, whereas the reproductions were produced as etching, silkscreen, and photography.
