It would be naive to presume the existence of an absolute world view. Particularly in the age of globalisation, those who are conscious of their origins and cherish their roots can ultimately draw forth the power of self-expression.

Through the possibilities offered by our academy for students to shape their own personal creative environment, a sound foundation can be developed that is propitious to the placement of artwork. Individual unexplored material can also form part of the equation. Those surprised by their own actions already hold the key to the next door in their hands. In the 'melting pot of the world' in which lines of cars wind their way like lumps of food in the intestines, we have to explore side roads to give personality space to unfold. Ladies and Gentlemen, we want to address the catastrophes and mould and model until we've exhausted every option.


"In archaic societal forms dependent on oral tradition, wise men and storytellers were able to significantly enhance the population's chances of survival by passing on their experience.  

Lehanka fulfils the role of storyteller in a virtuoso manner, also for his students at the Academy of Fine Arts in Nuremberg. He communicates his experience in episodes and stories of almost lyrical beauty. Presented with performative commitment they are successful methods of penetrating the roots of artistic creativity, which cannot be verbalised."*
