Freizeit [Leisure Time (Hinrich Sachs in conversation with
Prof Dr Thiele, Director of the Stuttgart Ethnographic Museum)]
has been conceived, written, and prepared for being published in a German art magazine, to coincide with a gallery exhibition. Next to an interview conducted with the director of the museum, seven illustrations were painted (acrylic on aluminium, 30 x 40 cm),
based on activities in the very museum.
As the original publishing fell through, the work was repeatedly shown formatted as a mounted layout, accompanied by one or more paintings. A version with the text in French has been realized in 1998. In 2010, the work was first published in print.
