'Artistic Photography & Market' (VII)

Guest: Dr. Tilman Treusch, Galerie Kornfeld, Berlin

Boris Eldagsen (DFA) and Alexander Hagmann ( talked on 30 March 2022 to Dr Tilman Treusch, gallery owner and art historian, about the development of the photo art market and the role of photography in contemporary art.

We talked about the common thread of his work so far, the mediation of images to a specific audience, what he appreciates about being a gallery owner and how the gallery finds new artists. We talked about NFTS, ParisPhoto, what distinguishes the art fair in Dubai from European fairs, and the current collaboration with the Frankfurt gallery Anita Beckers. Afterwards, Dr. Treusch showed us the current exhibition by Susa Templin.
