Artworks from the Middle Ages to the present illustrate the complex connection between human beings and their environment. From loving care to exploitation, from menace to fascination, the relationship between people and nature is an ever-present topic—and was of existential importance long before the life-threatening consequences of global warming and pollution we are faced with today.

Currently I am showing a square meter forensic image sculpture from the Amazon on my expedition vehicle, accompanied by an extensive photo documentation. I report on the difficult and life-threatening situation of the inhabitants of the Amazon through the Belo Monte dam project, illegal logging, robbery and the consequences that also affect us.
