This project is about former generations and their hopes about their future.
I got the idea 2008 while looking on photographs showing my daddies school mates in the year 1962. Unburdened schoolboys a view years before “1968” – the year of big changes in society :
And I asked myself which ideas and dreams this generation might have had, and how these changes in 1968 are still alive today. On the other hand, I also asked myself which achievements maybe got lost on the way or changed into the opposite now.
The schoolboys themselves looked quite similar to schoolboys nowadays- but a lot of things happend since then.
In conceptual artworks I will bring these items into a context:
- Photographs from the PAST and TODAY, portraits of people , collages from magazines will be painted, collaged and reordered to a conceptual serie of artworks.
- Different periods of time ( World war I and II, ex DDR, UDSSR, 1968 etc.) and different questions will be critically analysed.
- At the end of the year I would like to produce a book with all the paintings and findings .
- And last but not least: I will try to find an international gallery to exhibit the works!

Since my visit in Shanghai 2007 I am deeply impressed by the people there. A lot of works of mine where inspired by this experience.
Yes, I am an artist, I normally live from selling paintings, and of course paintings are more expressive than a print ever can be-
BUT, what should people do when they love paintings, but can´t afford them?
OR, they do not have enough space in their appartments?
Thats really a problem for many people, they love art, and are not able to live with it.
Sad story, isn´t it?
But for me as an artist, it is more interesting to get an audience for my work, then selling a large painting once.
I believe in art as an important media for people who are willing to get in touch with different views of life.
Maybe I am stupid, or crazy, but I would love to see my – or others – Artprints in many of boring appartments arround the world!

My name is Alexandra Bolzer, I am visual artist and designer . As artist I work successfully for several years, but since 2011 I additionally work as pattern designer for a great agency in Vienna. There I learned again to use fabric and styles which inspired me for own projects.
First I was producing clothes for me, which was very wasteful and frustrating, so I started to make hats for me, and for christmas presents to all my relatives . ( most of them were not really very happy about it ).
I really liked that so much, that I thought the old coat from Fanny ( my first dog) is too ugly to go out with both girls .
