Kleine visuelle Nachlese zu meiner gemeinsamen Ausstellung mit Eva-Maria Bischof-Kaupp in der Mohr-Villa Freimann im Mai 2019.
A few of my works are currently travelling to Amsterdam to join the group exhibition PAPIER 19. 13 artists who work with paper in different ways exhibit selected works from March 19th to 24th. I am showing some of my little teabag houses, news textures and altered books.
As part of the exhibition programme I am teaching a paper workshop on 22nd and 23rd of March . For two days, participants can alter books with me, take their stories apart and retell them in a threedimensional way – Lunch included.
Both events are organized by Atelier Open, where you also find additional information:

Altering News. tour on the 3rd floor.
Altering News questions how we build a physical and emotional contact with newspaper, as material, as medium, as news. In the attic of the water tower, visitors were invited to explore the topic with their own hands.
Looking back on the exhibition, I am thankful for the chance to create a specific and spacious atmosphere in the extensive premises of the water tower and encouraged by the interest and resonance from visitors. It has also been valuable for me to be in contact with the city of Dachau, a city whose very name elicits physical and emotional reactions.

Here are some impressions from my recent exhibition “Papier. Los!” (Paper. Go!) at the Old Jailhouse in Freising. From Jan 27 to Feb 4 the space was filled with works from paper. I was there with my artist friend Eva-Maria Bischof-Kaupp, who presented new drawings and prints and many threedimensional pieces. I showed works with altered books, especially Dante’s “Divine Comedy”, new pieces from newspaper and also the recent occupation with cracks in the road that I conserved on paper.
The transformation of news – with newspapers as the main material – is still my main theme. There will be a solo exhibition on this next May at the water tower in Dachau.
The annual palace exhibition of the association of artists in Dachau has just been opened. I had been invited as one of 21 artists to show one piece that relating to the theme “2 x 2 m”.
To comply with the rules, I filled a 2 x 2 m space with newspaper bowls. 251 of them were needed. As I wanted to connect these news containters into one form, I stitched them together and created a news shape. Its dimensions are roughly 1,5 x 1 x 0,5 m.
The news shape, paintings, installation and video art can be seen at Palace Dachau until Sept 3 2017. Many thanks to Künstlervereinigung Dachau for an exciting exhibition in a special location.
If you feel inspired to create with paper and wire the next workshop at MachWerk München (Schulstraße 1, Neuhausen) is for you! On Saturday, 24th of November 2018, we will combine paper and wire to create delicate structures, small objects or christmas decoration. Apart from paper and wire we will also use wallpaper paste and – depending on what you like – yarn, beads, found objects etc.. My main aim for the day will be to give your creativity space and support you in realizing your own wire and paper projects.
The workshop starts at 9.30 a.m. and ends at 4.30. p.m. There will be a lunch and coffee break.
I will bring along wire, paper, wallpaper paste and tools. All you need to bring is an interest in experimenting. And – if you want – also
