ECM 2022

Non-sports photography...

Olympic Spielstrasse reloaded

A documentary essay.
Contemporary art played an important role in the 50th anniversary of the Olympic Games in Munich. While the major Olympic sporting event 1972 was enriched by the progressive “Spielstraße” cultural festival, in 2022 national and international artists of all genres  realized performances, actions, films, concerts, dance, and installations around the Olympic Lake at the invitation of the City of Munich’s cultural department.

Munich Olympic traces

Before Munich celebrated 50 years post Olympics´72, 
the cultural department asked me to start 2021 to follow the current life in some relevant historic sites. A photographic warmup for a following year of an annicersary overkill...

Bayrische Staatsgemäldesammlung

The yearly magazine publication of the Bavarian State Painting Collections invited me to contribute an essay about “The Pinakotheken and the City”. Strolling through the neighbourhood that surrounds the Pinakotheken in summer 21, observing how streetlife and artinstitutions connect.

Harald Schrott
Mein Tirol Magazine

Portraits of the Tyrolian actor in Berlin, where he lives since many years. The City had to be present, a part of the story, and we got into details about sites and seeing. Harald was so charmingly open and honest, e.g. explaining why the horse-statue as my first location evokes his old horse-trauma etc.
A very nice encounter, and happy to see how his hair-curled and adapted to the decorative urban surrounding ; )
