Bruno Ingemann, artistic research in visual memory

I see myself working in the field of art, but I have no intention to exhibit my work in commercial galleries and I have no need to sell my works. I just want to make my investigation in visual memory publicly accessible. Like on this website, but it can also be in physical rooms.
Born 1945 I have been working with pictures of many kinds in my professional life as a graphic designer, photographer, illustrator, communication planner and researcher in a variety of private businesses and public institutions and as a scholar and teacher in universities.
