Dear friends and companions,


on 4th may the installation „Go West“ had ist opening at the Austrian Cultural Forum in Washington DC, which I have conceived together with Jutta Fischel and Konrad Stania.


Dr. Erika Freeman gave us the big honor to open the event with one of her legendary speeches full of whit and wisdom...
