You are also active as a designer in the arts scene in Vorarlberg. Is it important in this field or just helpful to have a connection with the region?
The Rhine valley area of Vorarlberg is not just a thriving location for business, it is also a cultural hotspot. In architecture, for example, it has attained an international reputation. But also museums like the Kunsthaus Bregenz, the vorarlberg museum, which was refurbished just a few years ago, and the Kunstraum Dornbirn are immensely attractive as exhibition venues. I see myself as part of this cultural scene and do various programmes for a performance festival, for example, and a series of publications on contemporary local artists for the vorarlberg museum.
I think that when you work in the arts field in particular, having a passion for the subject and a personal relationship to the client and the place is highly relevant. And part of this is of course being involved in that scene yourself, and enjoying participating in it. That automatically leads to contacts and inquiries, because people know each other and have respect for one another.
