The Thitz Exhibition at the Herakleidon Museum the Art “Marathon around the World” was organized by the Environmental Organization “CleanupGreece”
The exhibition was supported by the Greek Ministry of Culture and under the auspices of the German Embassy in Athens.
The bag is Thitz's trade mark and it is a surface for his painting, an important component of his collages, and, over and again, a herald from foreign lands and cultures.
With the bag, the artist travels the world. In the framework of this year’s Eco Art Festival Athens, this vision is specified for the rescue of nature, culture and peace. It’s a strong message that is carried by Thitz's “runner” specially painted for his individual exhibition in Athens.

THITZ Exhibition and Bag Art Project in the well known Museum of the state
Anhaltische Gemäldegalerie Dessau
Catalogue edited by Kerber Verlag www.kerberverlag.com ISBN 978-3-86678-406-2
Opening at Orangerie des Schlosses Georgium at April 24, 6 pm .
Over 1000 painted bags from the citizen of Dessau were integrated in the Installation by THITZ.
A lot of people did write political messages on their bags like "save our Theater" or "no cuts in cultural institutions".
After that was published by the local press- Cultual minister and other politicians did call for a discussion event in the exhibition.
"In the 1994 ’Chabola City’, a shabby hut becomes a palace growing skyward, which has more in common with Cologne Cathedral than with the poor quarters on the outskirts of our cities. Thitz lends dignity to the forgotten slums, so curiously deserted.Our reality is ambivalent. Appearances are always deceptive; the artist sets out to expose them. ’Puschkin- allee‘, a 2010 Berlin picture, is comparatively calm. An autumnal mood pervades the visual web. And embedded in the fine branching of the trees we discover messages from the artist. Banal phrases, echoes of people in the urban space: ‘wisdom’, ‘artist cell phone’, ‘global’, ‘freedom’, or ‘prosperity 6000 km’. Viewers hesitate, look for explanations in the picture, and are left alone with their endeavours. Thitz does not resolve the puzzle of his pictures. The world as he sees it is too complicated, too complex for a one-dimensional explanation. Thus the phrase ‘Art saves the world’ from the same picture is wishful thinking, a vision, a wonderful idea. We write our own story about it."

Museu de Arte de Londrina - Brasil
projecto de arte com sacolas – Brasil
Museum exhibition at the Museu de Arte de Londrina in Brazil (500 km from Sao Paulo). For the “Brazil Bag Art Project” I am working with the kids of the Favela Franciscata . The children are painting on tote bags, which then will be part of the Installation at the Museum. The Installation and Exhibition will be published in a catalogue and then go to other Museum Exhibitions in Europe. With the project we are supporting the Giovane Elber foundation which organizes schools and education for the children of the Favela.
(Please check the web page for donations: www.giovane-elber-stiftung.de)
He has invited dozens of peaple to decorate these bags, a remarkable series of individualized promises. They show us states of well-being and experiences which the creators of these images wish us. I see in them signals of human solidarity which have become ever the more important in our times of crisis. But it is for us to accept these wishes and to fill these forms with content.

The B.A.G. "Bag Art Global" Tour
The international exhibition Tour starts early !
At the art Fairs in Spain "Arte Puro"Vigo 2007 and at Turkeys metropolis ISTANBUL Contemporary art fair 2007 the first works of the "Bag Art Global" series were exhibited. The big Museumshow at the Cultural center of Athens shows a main part of that series and objects, the huge Outdoor-Bag-Sculpure and a new conceptual art project. The show was curated by Mrs. Angela Dikeoulia (Galerist) .
The "Bag Art Global" Tour will lead him from 2008 on to Brazil, Seoul, Madrid, Istanbul, Miami, Toronto, New York, London. etc
Since about 1989, the Thitz works with bags. The painted Thitz Bag has taken also another, conceptual significance: The bag as a means of communication and Installation.
Towns and Cities, like Grenchen (Switzerland) Goch, Siegen, Karlsruhe, and Offenburg (Germany), Miami or Athens were comprehensively covered by bag projects, i.e. sometimes the “interrogative” bag were sent even to every household. The high extent of participation was just as surprising as the answers themselves. In Athens, 1000 bags were finally to be seen at the Gallery. 3000 bags, filled and decorated, made it back to the famous museum "Staatliche Kunsthalle Karlsruhe" during the big Thitz-Show last Year.What may be crucial for the individual’s open-mindedness is the individual message and thus the personality behind it, regardless of the person’s socio-cultural environment or his proceeding country.
Normally the results of the bag art projects were shown in the form of an Installation by Thitz in one room of the Museum during the exhibition of his other works.In one of Austria's most beautiful Art-installation-spaces at the Franziskaner-Church in Feldkirch the installation took the form of an huge 7m diameter sphere.
The so-called "globalization" in all means is one of Thitz favourite art-subjects. His first world-installation was a wooden 4 m diameter construction during an exhibition of the art academy in Stuttgart 20 Years ago. Since then the subject "world" was a running thread between Thitz conceptual art, installations and paintings. The book "Die Thitz Welt" 2004 shows a good résumé of that.
Thitz travels over the world since his studies at the "Fakultad de bellas Artes" at Barcelona, Spain. Then he collects bags and painted impressions. Also the meetings with the people are part of the conceptual process. . The impressions of different cultures, people and countries do directly take influence in his artwork, installations, objects and paintings. Over several years he developed his own theory of an individualized globalization.
Bag Art Global - Series:
are showing forth clear messages of that theories. People of all colours (even blue and grey ones) live together in his "Bag Cities" . Not all of them are happy, some are looser at the mostly colourful and joyful world of Thitz metropolises. Nevertheless his paintings try to show the more positive side of our world without ignoring the other darker part. Thitz always implemented political messages in his work. One may find clear statements like "EAT CO2" or "Peace" in the paintings but also hidden in the fine drawings some riddles like "better Wilhelm than George W."
Thitz work is part of the international Art Scene since Years.
With his recently developed series of " painted cities"- he presents a new and unique statement of painting itself. That series was first presented at the famous "Staatliche Kunsthalle Karlsruhe". There also appeared the new book "painted cities". Never touched by fashionable "Schools" or techniques, but rather by the cultures of countries and people he met at his voyages, his paintings are now really unique. And thus are easily recognizable by collectors and curators at exhibitions and Art Fairs.
The paintings are also part of his conceptual art projects (Bag Art Projects) which are realized through Museums in different cities (e.g. Athens, Miami, Grenchen (Switzerland) and Feldkirch(Austria). Parts of the answers may later be found in the paintings. Communication is one of the most important parts of his work. His newest projects lead him once again around the world.
The "bag art global" tour will show his work in at least 9 countries from Tokyo and Spain to Brazil, Istanbul and USA (Miami, New York) .
Thitz paintings are found in several Museums, (e.g.; Karlsruhe, Siegen, Offenburg, Miami(USA), Grenchen(CH) ) and recently also in important private collections as Museum Frieder Burda (Baden Baden), Sammlung Würth (Künzelsau) and Deutsche Bank (Frankfurt)
Thitz is never "normal" neither "traditional" nor "modern" - he one of the few "really original" artists in the contemporary Art Scene.
Exhibition „Bag Art“ at Cultural Centre of the City of Athens

Paintings and objects by Thitz
A most natural reaction when entering an exhibition is for a visitor to place an artist and his creations into the landscape of our own very personal experience. It is very rare to see works of art which seem without precedence, isolated form the steady and continuous flow of art history. Have we seen works like Thitz's before? This afternoon, I finally stopped torturing my brain to squeeze out the name of an American artist of Caribean origins.
In fact I do see Thitz work well integrated into a stream of contemporary art. And yet, I hasten to add that he takes a lead in that field, because he does it particularly well, with great skill and depth of analysis and creative mission.I suppose, if we were to choose a label, we might see Thitz against the background of new pop art revival. We do see familiar elements in his reflection of the attributes of our consumers' society, which like CocaCola bottles, Cambells' soup tins or Brillo boxes became the celebrated objects of the popart movement in the 80's of the 20th century. The integration of textual material was also a characteristic of the move¬ment.
And yet, I personally felt, when coming to see Thitz's paintings earlier today, that they had reached another level of reflection: The spiral seems to have moved up one or two levels of conciousness. Objects and messages of our consumer world no longer appear as isolated idols , but very much so as elements of a more complex scenery. They now have become elements of networks, cityscapes. The attributes of modern popular culture belong no less to the structural matrixes of the metropolis than architectural walls and fassades.Paris, I feel tempted to sing to you one of my favourites Parisian chansons: Sous le ciel de Paris s'envole une chanson, oui oui:If, for example we regard for a monent the painting showing us the River Seine flowing under a bridge. we do recognize the Pont de la Mairie. But the walls of the city and the message have moved in to create a much denser environment than we would actually find around the original. We, being all of us Paris lovers, I presume, are familiar with the scene, and yet Thitz reminds us that our world has changed, that beyond architectural traditions, our city scape, new meanings have entered the stage to determine our collective existence.We recognise the obejects of Pop art, and yet they seem, if once, in the 20th century, they had been presented to us with an air of tranquility and reass¬urance, they now reappear in a much more nervous context. For how much longer will resources be available to produce all of these wonderful modcons?
Modcons which have rendered our lives so much easier, it seemed? Pop world revisited is a world under great pressure. It is a world of of resource scarcity and allocation. How could New Pop art not be an art reflecting these existential concerns, an epoch of crisis and, we must fear, conflict? New Pop comes with some sweet memories, but on board is also an even greater sense of urgency.In this painting I was pleased to see a Challagian figure floating through the sky, a reference if not a reverence to the centrality of the human individual in earlier periods of modern art.New York, another city of my life, there truly I did it my way:Start spreading the news,'I 'm leaving today,I want to be part of it, New York, New York ... (singing)
Thitz was in New York on 9/11. He is now presenting to us a panorama of Manhattan, which we do recognise and yet a different picture. The twin towers of the World Trade Center are gone. Timidly, it seems, a new freedom tower may sprout from the rocky ground of Manhattan Island. The famous skyline is represented in a rather moderate way. What we see, above all, is the reemergence of the people. They are no longer hidden inside their rabbit cages, but they are looking at us seeking to communicate with us, us, their brethren in a globalised world.
In this Thitz is a protagonist of a much wider stream of contemporary art, which is the reemergence of the human individual and of human collectives as the focal point of artistic creation. The human and humanity are back in town, in art. It seems that in new pop art the hu¬man is reinstalled back into his place, which classically speaking is his as of right. The human, and ...humanity.Speaking of the human place in art, I feel that the time has come to walk on a few steps to a painting which reflects Thitz's personal perception of Athens.
Artistic expression in classical ages reached an amazing variety of forms and contents. But surely in the 5th century B.C. they had in common a concentration of analysis and expression on the human body. And I should hasten to add: on the human mind, and soul. The painting which Thitz has collaged in the centre of Athens may well be by the one by Raphael possibly showing Saint Paul, possibly also Saint James, maybe in a fictitious way even Platon or his spirit. Philosophy for sale? Is this the state of Athens in our times? In classical Athens the „philosophy for sale“ was a very sensitive issue. Platon and his academics despised the sophists for offering their wisdoms for money. And yet, I personally find in the teachings of sophists like Protagoras an insight into human existence which often seems more realistic than the idealisms of the academy. There is surely no less truth in art than in rationality.The classical age opened the spectrum for defining human identity between the poles of rationality and irrationality, logos and mythos, philosophy and the arts. The Acropolis, like no other monument, bears witness to this dialectic which has especially set the stage for the evolution of European identity. In contemplating the artworks created by Thitz we may become particularly conscious of these our roots.
Thitz, a painter, but also a thinker. Thinking is very clearly and obviously an important source of artistic creation. I firmly believe that great art works regularly reflect brilliant minds, the intelligence of the creator. Intelligence for me is a measure to distinguish good art from rubbish. But then it is also true that art is a powerful source of intelligence, of logical and philosophical thinking, even though less conspicuously than is the influence of logical thinking of art. If it is less evident, this follows logically from the fact that the impact of art can¬not be expressed in terms of the logos, only in the idiom of art.BagArt. A characteristic trend of renaissance paintings were the vanities, paintings reminding the onlooker of his mortality and admonishing him to live his life accordingly, to embrace the nearness of death as his guidance.
In BagArt Thitz represents not vanities, but opportunities. The various images on his bags seem like promises, even though empty promises. Thitz' bags are, however, an appeal to all of us that we must not succumb to the prefabricated promises of our supermarkets' and discounter world. He has invited dozens of Athenians to decorate these bags, a remarkable series of individualized promises. They show us states of well-being and experiences which the creators of these images wish us. I see in them signals of human solidarity which have become ever the more important in our times of crisis. But it is for us to accept these wishes and to fill these forms with content.
