Volker has spent the last years of his life growing and building the international Forgotten Land community. His mission is to support the discovery and creativity of both individual and group creativity through art, music, movement, somatics and performance. As an artist and social entrepreneur, Volker focuses on creating the spaces for other’s flourish, share their gifts, and discover their own potential.
He is an artist who places his artistic work in the context of society. He successfully develops and realizes concepts, strategies and ways of working within the framework of different life worlds. In relation to specialized systems, he understands non-artistic issues, problems and prejudices in order to respond to them professionally and justify the relevance of his own work.
His studies are focused on rituals in traditional communities. His most important mentor and teacher, the griot (trad. myth teller) Nago Koite from Senegal/Berlin, introduced him to African dance, music and storytelling.
