Artist in Residence, 2023
Thomas Bissinger is a writer and physicist from Germany.
"In writing, I may be someone I’m not, someone I lack the predispositions to be: the time, the courage, the gender, the background, the malice. In this respect, writing is fun. In writing, I may say things in a way perhaps only I would. In this respect, writing is beautiful. In writing, I may create worlds that others can experience. The capability to enter the worlds of others and to understand their experiences is the prerequisite to human kinship. In this respect, writing might be important. And so I write, in search of a thing worth saying, in a language worth listening to, somewhere between poetry and storytelling. No one ever outgrows the childlike fascination of telling and sharing stories".
