Leading Thought


Tradition is

Keeping the fire alive

and not worshiping the ashes.


(Gustav Mahler)


Since 2008 I have been a "free range" artist and took on responsibility for the Karl König Archive, publishing the works of Karl König.


2011 I initiated the founding of the

Karl König Institute for Art, Science and Social Life

- a charitable organisation.



My main task at the moment is publishing a New Edition of Karl König's works in German and English, but also offering lectures, courses, seminars on many themes and writing poetry.

Since May 2015 I am a member of the

Poetry Caravan of Columbia County
