Plzeň Czech Republic · DEPO2015

DEPO2015 • Meeting with the Programme Director Tomaš Fridrich to briefly discuss common creative ground between DEPO2015 & MoMA Lemon. As a working artist in Germany since a couple of decades I become aware of the lack of sponsorship in the arts in Germany, only the toughest can survive. Interesting to notice that a whole bunch of famously successful german artists are from the east of Germany. Richter, Baselitz, Rauch. As an artist working in the provincial region of Burghausen I am well aware that there is much to be done here with regards to the arts.

Here at DEPO2015 there is an incredibly powerful atmosphere of unity and creative potential for cultural & creative industries to unite in a surrounding environment of coworkers & makers bringing international art movements together. I also discovered a wonderful incredible edible type project going on in a huge factory hall on the grounds of DEPO2015 organized by local Czech people, thank you Lukáš Petržela
for introducing me to this wonderful project, which brings fruit & chocolate from Uganda and the returns directly back to the farmers in Uganda who actually harvest the fruits and cocoa beans.
And don't you know how a painter so inspired by cows can come to adore chocolate! And all things incredible edible https://www.incredibleedible.org.uk/
I'll be back! Tomáš Fridrich
I love DEPO2015
