Brecht is avant-garde.
A classic portrait therefore does not seem appropriate to me.
Whether word, image or performance, theater is changing.
Today, epic storytelling works with elements such as "emoticons" or "characters".
Because he deserves to stay modern, absolutely has to stay modern "Il faut être absolument modern" (Rimbaud) , I designed one of these modern things for him for his 125. birthday.
A forest of CO2 ?
A rowing boat in front of the Elbphilharmonie?

seven years of amber fishing
(the chaos is just the thin shell of order)
When shores are out of sight,
when all orientation is given up,
when you beyond knowledge,
the treasure is found.

."Time" for an art prize:
In April 2020 I started a part-time job at the art university. In April of the same year the
College closed cause of pandemic. I did not work. Nevertheless, I get a salary of around 1000 euros. For my freelance artist soul, this money was hard to understand. A blessing? A gift?
Without thinking, I knowed what this money will go to.

Information flows, Water flows. Data flows.
"Culture on the Net" On behalf of this idea, I produced ceramic information carriers in June, July and August 2021.
The finished objects, filled/branded with key concepts of human culture, were subsequently placed in the source areas
of the great rivers of the country. The source flows around them.
May the water absorb this information*. May this information flow throughout the country.
*Masaro Emoto's water memory, homeopathic medicine, holy water...
Since time immemorial, people have believed that water can store and pass on information.

"Some Cold Nights"
Can we speak of a failure? The darkness, the cold, the endlessly long nights of the Vogtland winter should create great things. A monument of the seasons. An iceberg. Many winters of strenuous work and persevering hope remained unsuccessful. All in all a debacle, the reasons for which are obvious. The climate is changing. 2021 saw some cold nights. Less a ray of hope than a sign of the end of another important stream, they could do nothing great. A small giant emerged. A monument to its own transience. Narration of consolation in blue becoming water.
Complete calm. time without end. moss on everything.
All battery full. my sister, my brother,
Do you know where I am,
