I, too, in Arcadia! is the motto of Goethe’s Italian Journey, although it was given up by the poet at the end of his life. The artistic work elaborated by Franjo Tholen (* 1960) during his scholarship at the Casa di Goethe is dedicated to Arcadia, paradise of transitory happiness.. For this purpose the artist modifies and varies existing fotos and images, creating new correlations and kaleidoscopic possibilities of a fresh contemplation.
