13 March   
Meeting with "The Painter" Joseph Marioni in New York, U.S.A. (photo). Marioni is a leading theorist for what he calls radical concrete painting, and for him color with its emotional resonance is the essential characteristic of painting that distinguishes it from other art mediums. The paint covers the surface, but it is not put on evenly, you see how rivulets of pigment coursed down its surface, thanks to gravity, coming to an end unevenly at its bottom edge.
   14 March  
Meeting at the Manhattan studio of artist Thomas Pihl. 
Born in Bergen, Norway in 1964, Thomas Pihl lives and works sinds 1994 -for the most part- in New York City, U.S.A.. The center focus of his concept of art is his critical dialogue with the phenomenon of the (over-) aestheticizing of western or western-influenced, visual everyday culture and the confrontation with the cultural, political, and ethical implications of mass productions and mass consumption of pictures. Sinds 2000, he has been working on the 'Prearticulations ' series. These works are paintings whose many layers are composed of semi-transparent acrylic paints which have been poured onto the canvas
   15 March   
Meeting with Johannes Girardoni at his New York studio. 
The in 1967 Austrian born artist grew up in Vienna before immigrating to the U.S. in 1982. Girardoni began as an abstract painter, but became increasingly interested in three-dimensionality. Through an encounter with the work of Jasper Johns, he became acquainted with the rather rare technique of encaustics, the juse of wax as a binding agent for the paint pigments. In addition to objects which he has found by chance (mostly wood, sometimes also metal), colored or natural wax is his preffered medium.

Meeting with Roman Opalka at the Museum d'Art Contemporain, St. Etienne, France. Photo: from left to right the artisits Roman Opalka and Rene Rietmeyer with curator Sarah Gold. They are standing in the structure called ‘Octagon’ which Roman Opalka espessially designed for presenting his work and spoken words. In the 'Octagon' Opalka, Rietmeyer and Gold were having a lively discussion about whether Roman Opalka will stop painting or continue, if he is not able to stand with grace anymore infront of his canvases inorder to paint. 
   27 June   
Curator Sarah Gold presents the project Personal Structures to Roman Opalka (photo below). The work of Roman Opalka is about time, and he has made the clearest and most emphatic statement imaginable by measuring out the present tense of his life in painted and spoken integers and daily photographs.
   In 1965 he developed the thought for his lifelong-lasting project, "OPALKA 1965/1-[infinity]". Each canvas is filled, left to right and top to bottom, with horizontal rows of tiny consecutive numbers painted with white acrylic paint on a gray ground. He had started with white on black, but when he reached 1,000,000 (in 1972), he decided to add white to his ground in 1 percent increments, and he began to say the numbers as he painted them, looking to the eventual stage of painting white on white.
