Roald Max Vollmer

Artist

My work grows out of my experiences of living now in the 21st century in a troubled, uncertain world, with the awareness of living in a Europe that grew out of violence and calm, and in a country in which I did not grow up: an advantage, as it enables me to perceive life here as well as in my own country with strange eyes. Hence political aspects – taking 'political' in a wide sense – inform at least some of my work: questions of power, of knowledge, of ethics in art and art practice. read full statement
