ISSUE 022-09:




But where there is danger,
A rescuing element grows as well.
From 'Patmos', by Friedrich Hölderlin
(Translation by James Mitchell)

Many texts and pictures of mine reveal the everyday world in Bremen from an unusual point of view. My way of seeing is unusual, because I make a lot of time for people and places or sight them from a not ordinary angle. This approach finally gives me a wavering mental basis, on which I am able to act in the world.
This arduous way to become self-assured is a consequence of my personal history. In my parental home I was the only one, who took his high-school diploma, got an university degree and completed an academic training as a teacher. In my senior class I was the (almost) only one, who came from very modest circumstances. My verbal skills and my graphical talent brought about results early on.
In the end my relatives and my middle and upper class mates were unable to get on with those results of my creative work. Only a few teachers, who were especially affected by Christianity, comforted me. I, however, finally remained doubtful about the results of my creative work. Not before I was 40 years old, I got a certain, but also wavering assurance by most intensively facing up to the concrete phenomena of my lived-in world, especially in Bremen, again and again.
