A dialogue between non-Western and Western cultures on anthropological, sociopolitical, and environmental as well as economics-related and day-to-day questions


Spieler (Actor).

Harald Reiner Gratz observes Thomas Thieme
Harald Reiner Gratz, one of the most significant painters in Thuringia today, and Thomas Thieme, one of the most renowned German-speaking actors, a familiar face in film and television, took part in an experiment: the painter Gratz observed, studied and presented a portrait of the character actor over a period of three years.
An illustrative cycle was the result of this artistic encounter. Figure and action, space and time, painterly virtuosity and expressivity meet in paintings, drawings and photo-collages in the almost forgotten subject of the portrait of the artist. That which is seen is connected to imaginative scenes; that which is externally experienced to the internal images of the painter.
