I was born in Ingolstadt, Germany, in 1947. My desire was to become a poet. But after my studies of German and Roman language and literature in Munich, Paris and Frankfurt a.M. I decided to become a teacher due to the influence of the Frankfurter Schule (School of Frankfurt). I taught for years before finding out that for me film was the appropriate medium of artistic expression. It was not language, but visual art that opened the way to a very personal and intense poetic work. Since 1986 I created a body of work consisting of around thousand short films that I use for my screenings and also for exhibitions.
