Die Arbeit der Zeit
painted school photographs from 1962
This serie is about former generations and their hopes about their future.
I got the idea 2008 whil e looking on photographs showing my daddies school mates in the year 1962. Unburdened schoolboys a view years before “1968” – the year of big changes in society :
And I asked myself which ideas and dreams this generation might have had, and how these changes in 1968 are still alive today. On the other hand, I also asked myself which achievements maybe got lost on the way or changed into the opposite now.
