    “When I make art, social and political questions overlap with my interest in communicating certain experiences” (Franz Ackermann taken from U. Grosenick and B. Riemschneider, eds., Art Now, Cologne, 2002, p. 14).With his bright coloured canvases, Franz Ackermann’s body of work confronts itself with traveling, tourism and appropriation of places. Overstepping the title of painter, Ackermann is map-reader, creator, tracker and collector – an observer who creates large scale paintings, encompassing his viewer into his dynamic compositions.
