For many years, the artist Thomas Stricker (*1962) has been able to achieve great things with conviction and enthusiasm. He studied sculpture at the Düsseldorf Art Academy. In addition to sculptural projects in a wide variety of public spaces, Stricker also often realizes socially and ecologically oriented projects as open, participatory processes. He sees shaping society as a sculptural task and works across continents. www.thomasstricker.ch
Petra Knyrim (*1967) has had the African continent in her heart and in her mind since she was young. She was aware of her grace of birth from an early age. She studied communication design in Darmstadt and Düsseldorf and is a co-founder of nowakteufelknyrim, a design office that designs and implements communication media, signage systems and exhibitions, and which always lets her go her own way. To write children’s books. To raise a son. To discover the world. All the way to Africa.
