Beyond the Now is a critical examination

of the forest as a symbol

of the romantics for foggy vision

as well as utopian ideas about the future

and dystopian realities.

Based on the Italian landscape,

which was captured by German Romantics

in paintings of the 18th and 19th centuries,

a reflection of the past is interpreted here,

but visions of escapism and

an utopian future are also revealed.

Opposite is an insight into a

current forest area after a wildfire.

This discrepancy between the

actual state of existence

and the hopes of the past

forms the basis of the work.
