# So what is next for you? Apart from my own projects, I'm currently planning an exhibition in Shanghai for some painter colleagues of mine from Germany. I find the exchange between artists with such different backgrounds to be important and interesting, especially since the concept of art in China is really quite different. # You have mentioned that you're actually thinking about moving back to Germany and set up a studio in Berlin. You've never actually lived in Berlin, so what's the perception of Berlin from a Shanghai art scene point of view? What would you hope for or expect from Berlin? I'm having a great and inspiring time in China. It's exciting to experience how the Chinese interest in “western art” continues to grow. And while it's beneficial for me to have a different angle on my own art, I do miss the exchange with other artists who share a similar background. I like Berlin and from my perspective it's one of the most happening cities in the world. I love the fact that in Berlin you can go out on any given day and there will be several exhibitions to explore.
