The crisis as a chance
We plan to use this crisis to further intensify our digital communication of
the current shows and projects, but als of the former shows and generally the works of the artists we are representing. Not for nothing we are collaborating with Artland since almost 2 years to have all exhibitions accompanied by avirtual 3d tour. 3d tours by Artland
Virtual exhibitions at Artland
We have started the first virtual exhibition A Frame is a Frame is a Frame… by Dittmar Danner aka Krüger. Others will follow.Public prices
The recent developments on the internet art market (not only due the Corona crisis) favor a price transpareny. Step by step we also will implement the transpareny with published price portfolios. On Artsy as well as Artland you also find artworks for sale.
Furthermore we introduce you to the stunning exhibition Forbidden
Colours at Werkstättengalerie at Deutsche Werkstätten Hellerau, in
which abstract paintings by our gallery artists Dittmar Danner aka Krüger and Dirk Rathke are undergoing an intensive and beautiful dialogue.

Geometrisches Ballett by Ursula Sax
Here you find the essentials about the gesamtkunstwerk Geometrisches
Ballett (Hommage à Oskar Schlemmer) by Ursula Sax, which has been
resurrected after an almost 30 years pause. In 2019 at the reknown Radialsystem Berlin we could realize the premiere of the newly choreographed piece by Katja Erfurth, which since then had plenty of performances at other locations. The next performances will take place in autumn/winter 2020.
