[Holland Cotter: ‚Possibly the one indisputably defining feature of art in our own time is its shape-shifting inclusiveness.
All mediums — sculpture, photography, painting, performance, video, etc. — are on equal footing and can even coexist in a single artist’s work.‘]

(Death of Mother.)


SynPrax was an attempt, an experiment…to counteract, to overcome a fatal Reality…taking care of his ailing mother over fifteen years.
He saw it first as a task in the Allen Kaprow sense…Art and Life mingling with each other…But Reality is not to tackle with a Theory.

Returning from Amerika. Creating immediatly an installation in Berlin.
Being a flop, a disaster.

“Few cared.
Can be the show was unintelligible. Or the public was too unfamilar to read the whole as ART. Had endured aggressive remarks.
Above all: the so-callled artist changed the installation every day”

(J.Dewey: ‚A genuine Idea is an Idea in motion.‘)
