Patsch

Inge Patsch

Short biography
Despite all securities we can buy, we keep running into a longing for comfort and safety. They do not only elope our ingenuous technical accomplishments and control systems, but also all recipes promising happiness. Comfort and safety are strengthened by our basic trust in life and by our personal experiences. What is important is also having the courage to give room to “blessed idleness” and give more time to the belief in man’s goodness rather than suspicion.
