— VOLKMAR FÖRSTER
Volkmar Förster, a trained craftsman and electrician, has had an incredibly diverse education career that reflects his insatiable thirst for knowledge. The fact that his first professional contact with art was in the context of teaching shows how fundamentally important the joint discourse on it is for him. Where better to feel the presence of the other – or indeed at all – than in the theater? So he spent many years in various theater houses as a stage designer and later in film as a set designer. He understands his environment well, which makes him the perfect mediator between the idea and its expression – also in his painting.
