Aufgrund der aktuellen pandemischen Entwicklung findet die Veranstaltung mit Webex statt:
As part of the lecture series "Art as a Profession - Professions in Art" we talk to:
Gallery owner, fair founder, chairman of the professional association of German gallery owners:
What about in the field of galleries and art fairs? What significance and what future does trade in contemporary art have in Germany and internationally?
A lot has happened since Kristian Jarmuschek opened his gallery Jarmuschek + Partner in Berlin's Sophienstrasse in 2004: It moved several times and is now located on Potsdamer Strasse. He is the founder of the last remaining art fair at Berlin artweek - and that was neither his first nor his last fair. And he is involved in professional politics and has been chairman of the board of the Federal Association of German Galleries and Art Dealers (BVDG) since 2013.
Of course we would like to talk to him about his existence as a gallery owner, his program, his artists and his exhibitions - but he is also the person from whom we can experience firsthand how a trade fair works and how to sustainable match artists, gallery owners and collectors.
This lecture belongs to the series Art as a Profession - Professions in Art. (Cornelia Renz, Julia Brodauf) On the coming Wednesday afternoons we will continue to follow the trail in conversations with other players who sometimes even seem like opponents to us artists: gallery owners, curators, museum directors, journalists * inside, critics *, but also political institutions.
They too all want to persist in this field, earn money with art and help shape and define the art field. Let's get to know them!
