“Through my artistic work I want to tell something concerning the world in which we live, and tell something about the people and their surroundings.
Therefore, I am always interested in the places, where life happens, whether it be in the dodgy areas of the Alexander Platz in Berlin, in the streets of norm in Hannover, in the ambiguity of former German-German border towns or on the eastern periphery of Rome.
I try to understand the subjects better by creating multi-layered works, often with portraits, situational photographs, found photographic material and texts.
Based on recent works Wüstungen and Are You Happy I will narrate the very different approaches that different places and themes require.”
The lecture will be held in German.
