Most of my life I have been occupied with art. I graduated in painting at the Academy of Fine Arts, Munich and studied economics at the Steinbeis College, Berlin and SDA Bocconi, Milan.

No more newness. Let's get unique!
When I was a student at art school, most of us were very concerned about creating something new and exciting with our art. When we had finished a painting we started asking ourselves questions like "Well, this looks good, but is there any kind of newness about it?"

20 years later, same thing.
In the art world, quite a few people are still bothered by this strange question.

I think that this is not a relevant way to approach art:
'new = exciting' inevitably will transform into 'old = boring' after some time.

What seems to be new today often turns out to be only fashionable ..
