Ralf Tekaat

In my artistical work I reflect my roots and horizons: from where do I come, by which things I was and still am characterized. Which are my references? Who are the people who did and do influence me. Charles Taylor names all this “Sources of the self”.
As central theme I pick up my role models and my idols (James Joyce, Harald Schmidt and Mehmet Scholl), compare myself with superheroes or invent them. I question my changed role with getting older, remind me the time i was a child and question myself, why I am as I am (and doing art).
