FRANZ PETTO  - bis 14 September / jew. Do, Fr, und Sa geöffnet!


I am an artist with experience in PSYCHIATRY. The reason is complex, but mainly my family history. My father was nine years old when he was deported to an extermination camp in Gacowo. The camp was built up by Tito, a former dictator of Ex-Yugoslavia after World War II. My father and a part of his family survived, but the circumstances were terrible. More than half of the inmates died from hunger and disease, or were shot down just in the beginning. These old stories influenced my childhood and led to my vocation. After the war it was not allowed to speak about these occurrences. These camps are still to be kept secret by the government. I am an affected person, but not a revisionist. I was born in a broken world. This sharpened my sense for what is going on in this world. 
I just tell what happened in my life and around me, sometimes with the view of a child; sometimes with a little bit of irony, but always with hope, the world will become better in the future. I have always admired Old Masters, because of how they could handle colors. The mystery is that they understood the physics of light. But take care of yourself: Do not overeat with these saturated pictures of this world...
