This year my second year as Curator of the ’20 Positionen’ exhibition of work by artists from the GEDOK-München at the Akademie für Politische Bildung Tutzing.

The show opened last night and is now available to see on the new website at www.20positionen.wordpress.com.

This year I am showing a new body of work called the ‘Lone Wolf’ series which also includes two works called ‘Keine Angst Süße (Don’t worry Sweety)’.

The works explore ideas of fear and fervour in Europe today.

The wolves have just left the forest.

In folklore there are many tales about the danger of wolves in the forest. They tell us to beware and instil fear in us to make us cautious. The wolves represent the untamed and unpredictable part of human nature. In this work the forest has been transplanted by the urban jungle. And, the wolves have just left the forest and joined us.
