Art Ministry

Our idea was actually an art fair for Hamburg to propose and organize with the artists by the way: it came about 40 of us known. And that show up their work and their aspirations to create true cultural works one day in a public presentation is the really true artists that like to penetrate and not to lose hope. Exactly from this corner, actually the words come, that you don’t really care. The criticisms made recently by the renowned Hamburg artist Daniel Freytag, that Hamburg’s cultural funding in folk festivals with food miles and Entertainment presents and Kunstmassig rather than provincial is to see is not entirely new could read it some time ago, inter alia in the Buderpester Lloyd of a renowned art editor and was also previously often expressed but without visible reaction on the part of the city. But maybe interested in the hamBurger generally also not so for educational and other art, but more events and street festivals. An example could be the Gallery kit – integrated into an agency building in Hamburg-Rothenburgsort (also a neighborhood which is vernachlassigt our opinion for decades – there are hamburger, who know him not at all).

Here are 1998 exhibitions that can they with their quality and their content with other galleries. Here, not only hamburger but also internationally agierende artists have presented their work the problem: all were more than one would expect in such a place even if positivster setting and understanding of art, but they were mostly nameless or unknown here, not famous enough and therefore not worth enough of a good response, to be gesehen. All along the way but also not worthy of promotion art project on the part of the Ministry of culture – is here promotes the authority for urban development and environment. Incidentally, many exhibitions have here real event character tell at least the ones that have found their way here.

Goethe Festival

Culture must be understood as an indispensable part of the daily orientation”, the Culture Minister Heinrich Enderlein announced at the time. The friend of the arts agree”to celebrate in the traditional art world not only the private atmosphere, but also the comeback of Salon culture with ever-changing venues.

So the company could friends of the arts”sharpen its profile and compete not only with the Germany-wide festivities of Goethe, but also striking about sign in the traditional art. The appropriate frame lock Jacobi, of Malta, as well as the Derendorfer freight yard and the Heinrich-Heine was the Goethe Museum Dusseldorf University (see also projects Goethe Festival 250 years Goethe).

For the year 2004, the friends of the arts plan already the nearest Goethe Festival (Note editors: 2004 the friends of the arts of Dusseldorf the Goethe Festival held 255 years Goethe where the artist Silke Michel, Kristin Dembny, grit Wallace, Marta Maria Georgia Tanea, Julia Graff situation, Gila Abutalebi, Stefanie) Purschler, Sandra Hoitz, Anna Vilents and Karin Mitikuhler, the guitar duo Christof stainless Ward and Jan Knobloch took part. For the year 2009 it will see Edition artists to the 3.ten Goethe come to the 260 year of birth of Goethe). Their nationally acclaimed activities stand for quality and an excellently curated selection Gottfried Bohmer is responsible for that.
