refurtage from hallstatt
hallstatt, 2020
1 v Probably almost a hundred times I was led through through museums and exhibitions by strangers, by people however who were not able to contact me, to become significant, meaningful for me . Honestly spoken, their language and their actions were of incalculable meaning. By the way I was almost never interested in the content. I don't know why I used the services of these so-called intermediaries. Presumably, to avoid embarrassing situations that would have arisen, if I would not have taken the offer of a tour or explanation.
thoughtless abuses
2019 - 2020
4 v Although I make every effort to deal with every place, every situation, every person, meaningfully, respectfully, sustainably and carefully, or precisely because of this, I make serious mistakes, especially in particularly protected environments.

swimming
2017 - 2018
3 v An afternoon in Rovinj. Late October, perhaps early November. You are wearing a chic jacket, adapted to the autumn season. Few tourists are on the go. Actually none anymore. I stand on the bank and look out to sea. The sea attracts me, I want to dive into it. I undress on the promenade. There is only the sea and I. And I jump. Without making sure that I can take the temperature of the water. I can. I am swimming. I like the cold. I like the clarity. I like the pure loneliness. I like swimming out. But I also turn back. Again and again. I have changed since immersing myself.
I like the muslims and the muslims like me
2018 - 2019 21 v
When a large number of refugees from predominantly Muslim countries came to Europe, especially Austria, in 2015, I began to think even more about what this could mean for our culture in the long term. The majority who came were young men, but also families however. Austrians with more than several generations of Austrian roots have had fewer and fewer children since the 1960s. Migrants, especially Muslim migrants, basically have more than one or even numerous children. The majority of them are from less educated classes and the social class is not the best. The image of women and the attitude to democracy and self-determination are not something that inspires me in my personal view of things. I am skeptical. All in all, I am not too worried, as everything in life always develops differently than expected. Mostly.
nevertheless
2007 - 2018 12 v
Go forth, burning sighs, to that sweet place. Where it, which does not heed my suffering, remains, so proud to see, and so secure, taking life und its power as but a game. And there, armed with arrows and fire, besiege that hard and adamantine soul. So that it will turn to more merciful concerns, and so that it will take pity on my weakened laments. Go and tell the landscape of my pain, and how I go crying, short of breath. Ah, who hides from me that beautiful, gentle gaze? And then return, with it will tamed, to make my life happy and serene, for now it is loathsome to others, and burdensome to me.
confusion has its cause
2019 6 v
Two of my three children accompanying me through the forest, into rooms, across areas. I am breaking down from time to time. Taking a position that suits my children more than me. They accept it. The confusion is not theirs, it is mine. I don't know, what causes it. It is only guesswork that leads to new guesswork, into a labyrinth that could panic if I hadn't been caught in it for so long.
