Sobre el autor (1983)
The term simultaneity was introduced by philosopher Arthur Schopenhauer in an attempt to find a rational approach to coincidences in time (and space) that seem random and without casual logic but which nevertheless reveal meaningful connections within the life of an individual. Following the scientific knowledge about the cosmos of his time and testimonies of philosophers of all times, he had come to the conclusion that there had to exist a purposeful simultaneity in the cosmic workings which most of human beings have at some point experienced in their lives in form of an apparently pre-determined event.
Born 1969 in Giessen, Germany
After graduation in High School in Germany I was invited to the “Studienstiftung des Deutschen Volkes”, a foundation for the highly talented, which was back then recruiting students not only upon baccalaureate grades but also upon teachers’ and school directors’ recommendation and upon a weekend of selection talks and tests. I declined in order to stay completely free in my future ways. Questioning the highly competitive school system and the early stages of specialized education in Germany’s University System, I decided to study anything that interested me — philosophy, linguistics, neurolinguistics, psychology, art history — but keeping my main focus on German and French literature. In the area of art and painting I found school curricula most detrimental to the free development of one’s own ideas and signature style — one’s own handwriting. I took private classes in portraiture and oil painting. While working for various newspapers and publishing poetry in magazines, radio, and public readings, I took a chance and travelled to Mexico with the goal to study Latin American literature. I was immediately captured by the creative power of this country and ended up spending several months a year in Mexico.
