Corona – Covid-19

And now?

The corona virus keeps the whole world in suspense and under great pressure. A lot is written about that. These thoughts are not about the medical or economic problems. I try to approach another aspect from an artistic point of view.

Of course, I am also very concerned with the problem. Finally, I belong to the risk group 65+ and therefore I am trapped at home. That makes that the problem of "loneliness, togetherness etc." is omnipresent for me, reinforced by the fact that I live alone and that my partner, with whom I have lived together for over 31 years, died a few years ago.


Three series of pictures were taken during the lockdown between mid-March and late April 2020.

The course of things

The virally prescribed loneliness

Lockdown @ Home

Ideas and their effects – the action!

I don't just give up, I have to implement my photographic ideas. Alone in the studio. Unfortunately. Contacts with other people would break the rules of social distancing.

Ten times 10 seconds from my life.

How could it go on?

My pictures, which you can see here, are relatively difficult to see on the web, especially on a small mobile phone. Details are hardly recognizable. The pictures are designed for a format of approximately 100 x 150 cm. I may use one or the other picture later for an exhibition. But for now, I'm thinking for a implementation as a video or video animation.

Kommentare zur ersten Serie "Die viral verordnete Einsamkeit"

Generation 65+

Unlock of the Generation 65+

It's hard to believe! The calls of the 65+ generation were heard (beginning September 2020)! The Unlock of the 65+ generation is actually being discussed in the Federal Council of Switzerland. It's not decided yet, but we will probably getting a makeover soon! Great! We are no longer in corpore in the risk group.

What a joy! So go ahead, into the disco!
Or? ... but maybe there is something better.
How about art?

I prefer art. Not only because of the tinnitus. But I will not expand these three series of images. There are already 30 pictures. I have new works in the pipeline. An image installation and six videos. They also have a very close reference with Corona, the subject of contacts and relationships and of directives.

Click here for the videos Weisungen (Instructions).
The encounters will follow soon.

Stay healthy! See you soon.

Fall 2020

And it goes on...

Fall 2020. The number of cases of infections is increasing exponentially. Switzerland will soon be European champion. Is there a second lockdown coming? Do we have to limit our encounters again?

The safest option without any dangers in terms of infection is and remains the encounter with yourself ... Voila!

Corona-Across Corona-Across

End year 2020

The infections rise and rise...

The Federal Council decides on new restrictions shortly before Christmas. Is that enough? In Switzerland we are almost world champions. Unfortunately; seen negatively.

Every day around 4,000 to 5,000 newly infected, 100 dead, hospitals full ... Are the measures sufficient?

Les jeux sont faits; rien ne va plus?


Free time – and now?
