Peter was in contact with contemporary witnesses who knew Marilyn Monroe personally.
„It is very unusual to see such an incredibly beautiful woman with such an inner need. You think she is perfect, so happy. But Marilyn Monroe had this inner restlessness, to which women and men feel attracted equally.“

On the 50th anniversary of Marilyn Monroe's death, Peter was invited to give an eulogy in the chapel at Westwood Memorial Park in Hollywood, where the actress was laid to rest. In his appreciation, he recalled the world star who came from deprived backgrounds and achieved world fame with talent and diligence after a difficult life. Marilyn Monroe is the true American dream and is still an example for many today. Because of her tragic biography, which is reminiscent of extraordinary literature, Marilyn Monroe would occupy the same place for the 20th century as Tolstoy's ANNA KARENINA or Fontane's EFFI BRIEST before. For the future one can assume that Marilyn Monroe will become an icon like the NEFRETTI or the MONA LISA. Through her art, she would have managed to unintentionally become the myth of modernity.
Peter studied film science, psychology and history. He worked as a director, designer, curator and lecturer.
