Artist Statement
The year 2007 marked the turning point: from now on the majority of the world population will be living in cities. But "collector of cities", Fredder Wanoth, is not interested in the faceless agglomerations of mega-cities - for him, differences are what counts. At a time of global sameness, he looked for specific characteristics of cities on his numerous travels through central and eastern Europe. He distinguishes the green of the roofs of St. Petersburg from that of Moscow's roofs; and the so-called "Schoenbrunn Gold" from the gold of Crakow's facades.

Fredder Wanoth is an alchemist of drawing: highly concentrated, his drawing may be likened to graphic solutions of complicated equations, balanced by a rather symbolic use of colour. He reduces his cityscapes to the striking, the essential, but not the typical aspects in a tourist sense.

"Europolis" is a literary chimera, a city which has lost all its former importance, located where a great river flows into a great sea, and where once life was extremely manifold - possibly a city "on a human scale", as seen in Fredder Wanoth's fictitious city.
