About

(Deutsche Version untenstehend)

Over a period of decades I have had the fortune to engage with celebrated stars of our cultural scene, portraying them for television programs. World famous artists, incredible encounters and long conversations commissioned by the highly respectable German and European broadcasting corporations ARD, ZDF and ARTE.

These programs were often only broadcasted for a few minutes, however I have been able to salvage them in their original recordings, which I have transcribed and now plan to publish in book form.

Selfie with Richard Prince
Selfie with Richard Prince

Are you at all curious to find out how Andreas Gursky felt at the start of his world wide career to be the most high-end contemporary photographer of his time? How about getting to know Marilyn Mason as a water-colour painter? Or I could tell you why Richard Prince so very loved "Biker-brides"?

All this could be revealed with your help! I intend to publish and present all of these interviews of contemporaries in art and culture by form of a book, containing exclusive interviews ranging from Madonna's ex-lover, Tony Ward, to art megastar Matthew Barney!

These are great stories of "shooting stars", world-spanning careers and the ability to see failure as an important key part of an artist's legacy.

Weltberühmte Künstler, großartige Begegnungen, lange Gespräche.

Im Auftrag von ARD, ZDF und ARTE habe ich seit Jahrzehnten das Glück, den Stars der Kulturszene zu begegnen, um sie für´s Fernsehen zu portraitieren.

Gesendet werden von den Interviews oft nur ein paar Minuten. Aber ich habe sie gerettet, die Originaltöne, habe die Interviews Wort für Wort abgeschrieben und will sie nun in einem Buch veröffentlichen.

Wolltet Ihr immer schon mal wissen, was Andreas Gursky am Anfang seiner Weltkarriere als teuerster zeitgenössischer Fotograf dachte? Habt Ihr Lust, Marilyn Manson als Maler kennenzulernen? Soll ich Euch verraten, weshalb Richard Prince Motorradbräute liebt?

Dann helft mir, all die Interviews mit berühmten Zeitgenossen aus Kunst und Kultur von Madonnas Ex Lover Tony Ward über Tom Jones bis Matthew Barney in Buchform zu präsentieren!

Es geht um Shooting Stars, Weltkarrieren und den Mut, das Scheitern als Teil des Erfolgs anzusehen.

Ein Buch in zweisprachiger Ausgabe, englisch/deutsch

Risks and challenges

Mit Rückschlägen rechne ich nicht wirklich, weil die Interviews ja alle vorliegen. Es ist lediglich eine echte Fleißarbeit, sie in Druckform zu bringen und das in einer schönen, kreativen Form.
