Columbus: In Search of a New Tomorrow.

“Before the world is changed
it would perhaps be more appropriate
not to destroy it”
Paul Claudel

The idea of “COLUMBUS” was born with this sentence in mind. We felt the astonishingly positive resonance which our plan attracted from the very beginning to be a challenge to make this art edition something very special. And so we succeeded in involving artists from the endangered rainforest areas in the project and, for the first time, in bringing together fine art, photography, literature, drama and music in one work.

It has only been possible to create this large-scale artistic project with the assistance of many who think as we do: First of all, I would like to thank His Majesty King Juan Carlos of Spain and Mr. Hoet, manager of “documenta IX”, for their spontaneous willingness to be patrons of “COLUMBUS”.

My particular thanks goes to all the artists who have selflessly und generously taken part in this project.
And last but by no means least I would like to thank my in-house staff for their energy and enthusiasm in the production, organisation and distribution of the work.
Unfortunately it is not possible to mention individually everyone involved in making this project a success.
However I can assure everyone that this assistance will not be forgotten, and I am convinced that “COLUMBUS” will do justice to their efforts.

We would like this cooperation to encourage us and others to go further along this path. “COLUMBUS” is in fact merely a first step in a new direction. It cannot and should not replace our more extensive, personal commitment.
