On the occasion of Totentanz
Totentanz at Kulturkirche Stralsund, 2023: A Video tour of the exhibition
As their main event for 2023, Kulturkirche St. Jakobi, Stralsund, was showing my cycle of works „Totentanz“ from May 19 through July
31, and again from October 10–25. Almost 20,000 visitors from all over Germany and beyond came to see the exhibition, consisting of 41 oil paintings and 14 sculptures. “An overwhelming
resonance,” Gerd Franz Triebenecker, director of Kulturkirche St. Jakobi, remarked in his speech during the finissage, “way beyond our expectations”.
In case you were unable to see the exhibition, here's a short video that shows how well the historical venue and my contemporary works interacted.
