The year 2020 is really a special year in every aspect! Challenges - Innovations – New ways of thinking - fears - isolation - outbreaks - crisis especially for the culture and event industry - digitization on the rise - disruption - and we are all right in the middle of this.
What drives me personally in life are connections of all kinds. And especially in the last few months I felt the urge to create and maintain connections, as in my entrepreneurial network organization BNI, with my artists, with art, music, the nature. That was exhausting and is always incredibly fulfilling at the same time. Thank you for all the wonderful Feedback from all sides.
All these activities fill me with pride and joy. Whether art or music, literature, philosophy, nature, and conversations with each other support us all to find resilience in this time and to find the small islands where we can recharge our batteries, letting our spirits flow. And I can contribute to this with my work. And if you have read this far, then please share it with a friend, maybe a spontaneous person will find the way to my current exhibition, where all this is combined and one can get away from everyday life to just pause and see and enjoy art and music.
I am grateful for all the special encounters over the last weeks and looking forward to your visit in the future.
Cordially yours Petra Kern
