The dialogue is the essence of the 21st century – we live in a globalised world, are completely interconnected and have access to infinite information. But all this is not enough if we do not find our way to a culture of mutual respect. Only a mutual understanding of different views and perspectives allows for the solution of current problems. I therefore believe that art, which adequately meets the challenges of our time, will have overcome its self – imposed isolation in the modern age.
I not only want to respond with my art, but enable networks of relationships. I am interested in dialogue and cooperation with the knowledge that the social reality in the 21st century has become too complex for us to afford the luxury of a disciplinary simplification.
