From Production Sites to Museums
On Friday, 27 April 2017, we will start with four individual tours allowing us to visit some extraordinary production sites. Tour 1 will go to Bühnenservice Berlin, the biggest service supplier for theatres but also for artists in Germany. Tour 2 will take us to Bildgießerei Hermann Noack, a fine art foundry catering to artists’ requirements since 1897. Tour 3, on the other hand, will go to Gipsformerei (replica workshop) of the Staatliche Museen zu Berlin (Berlin National Museums), founded by King Friedrich Wilhelm III in 1819 as the Royal Prussian Institute of Plaster Casting. Last but not least, tour 4 will guide us to the exhibition NGORONGORO II taking place in various artists‘ studios in a former factory site in East Berlin (for timing please see agenda below).
Afterwards, we will have a networking lunch directly next to the Brandenburg Gate, then followed by our panel discussion about Siegerkunst – master pieces and how museums deal with it in cooperation with The Finnish Institute in Germany.
The half-day art business seminar and lunch welcomes the expertise and experience of various professionals of the art market to discuss the trends currently promoting change at the start of the Gallery Weekend Berlin.
On Saturday, 28 April 2018, we are extremely pleased to welcome Sir Norman Rosenthal and Michael Werner, who will be talking about The international art market as mother of fine arts in the Max Liebermann Haus.
The main language will be English – only some parts will be translated into German or vice versa.
