supersicko: Why do you do what you do?
Johannes: I want to learn new things about myself and the world. And get on people's nerves.
What role does the artist have in society?
To make it vivid and tangible that our world could also be a completely different one. To explore the entire ups and downs of human existence.

Albert Oehlen, if I had to choose one person.

I don't know, I'm not that interested in perfect things.
Which living or dead person would you like to spend a day with?
Where do you find inspiration?
Especially in pop culture, so in music, music videos, online culture, product design, gaming, commercial image databases. I'm also very interested in technical developments in the field of computer graphics.
What do you struggle most with in creating art?
With my fear of making mistakes and my fear of ruining invested time by making stupid decisions. And with my laziness.
What themes or symbols are the most important to you as an artist?
What it means to live as physical beings in a world that is becoming increasingly digital.
