I am preparing an exhibition for the Franz Marc Museum about self-portraits oft the artists of German Expressionism – a show about the self-fashioning of the artist in the first two decades of the 20th century.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE EPOCH/ART WORK?

It’s a difficult choice! But outside of the 20th century one of my favorite epochs is the Renaissance in Europe.

I love literature, especially from the19th and 20th century, walking in nature, and going to the theatre.

CURATOR’S CHOICE – WHAT ARE YOUR TOP 3 HIGHLIGHTS OF THE HIGHLIGHTS 2020?
Beginning with the Renaissance, I admire the collector’s cabinet with various artworks up to the 17th century from Kunstkammer Georg Laue. Another favourite, as I am very fond of this period, are Franz von Stuck’s Lovers at the edge of the woods from 1892 offered by Kunkel Fine Art. A piece from the 20th century I love is the work on paper by Gotthard Graubner from 1996/99 from Beck & Eggeling.

Dr. Sonja Lechner

Kunsthistorikerin / Art Consultant

WHAT PROJECT ARE YOU WORKING ON AT THE MOMENT?
Im Moment bin ich neben der täglichen Kunstberatung von Unternehmen und Privatsammlern damit beschäftigt, die Ausstellung „Münchner Meisterklasse IV: Sebastian Maas und Janka Zöller“ vorzubereiten, die wir ab 11. November im Kunstforum Münchner Bank zeigen werden. Als Kuratorin dieses Forums liegt mir diese Reihe in besonderem Maße am Herzen, da dort Kunst von jungen Studenten oder Absolventen der Münchner Kunstakademie in Form einer Verkaufsausstellung gezeigt wird, von welcher die Künstler 100 Prozent der Erlöse erhalten. Zudem wird aus Einzelankäufen der Ausstellungen die eigene Kunstsammlung der Münchner Bank aufgebaut – ein wunderbares Konzept, wie ich finde!

 

WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE EPOCH/ART WORK?
Ich wurde mit einer Arbeit über Caravaggio promoviert – daher ist und bleibt der römische Barock eine meiner Lieblingsepochen. Das außergewöhnlich beglückende am Beruf einer Kunsthistorikerin ist aber ja, dass Kunst uns ein „Bild“ jeweder Epoche bietet, respektive deren unzählige, und dass alle Explikationen miteinader verwoben sind – es gibt kein „Heute“ ohne das „Davor“, und dieses Wissen um das Gewesene macht auch die Bewunderung des Contemporary um so nachhaltiger.
WHAT ARE YOU PASSIONATE ABOUT (BESIDES ART)?

Lego ergo sum: Whenever my time allows, I read and find it very satisfying to feel connected with the creators of literature over the centuries. Moreover, I love to move in nature, I cycle daily to each of my appointments in Munich, in the evenings I walk along the Isar river and on weekends I go swimming in summer and climb the mountains during the other seasons!

WHAT DO YOU LIKE ABOUT THE HIGHLIGHTS IN MUNICH?
Das einzigartige an der Highlights Kunstmesse ist ja nicht nur deren Standort in einem der schönsten Bauten Münchnes, der Residenz, sondern auch, dass sie eine Offerte künstlerischer Schöpfungen bietet, die nicht nur quer durch die Jahrhunderte, sondern auch quer durch Genres und künstlerische Techniken geht: Das Wandeln durch die Messe gleicht daher einem Kunstspaziergang durch Säkula exquisitesten Schaffens in den Bereichen Malerei, Skulptur, Graphik, Fotografie, Möbeln, Schmuck, Silber und Porzellan.

01. – 04. Juli 2021 IN DER RESIDENZ MÜNCHEN

Warum auf den Herbst warten. Nach dem Ausfall vieler Messen und aufgrund des zweiten Lockdowns befindet sich der Geschäftsgang von Galeristen und Kunsthändlern seit Monaten im Slowmodus. Um ihnen so früh wie möglich wieder Gelegenheit zu geben, mit Sammlern und Interessenten in Kontakt zu treten, hat die HIGHLIGHTS – Internationale Kunstmesse München den Veranstaltungstermin vorgezogen.

Parallel zu den Münchner Opernfestspielen findet die 12. Ausgabe der hochkarätigen Verkaufsschau vom 29. Juni bis 4. Juli 2021 im Kaiserhof der Münchner Residenz statt. Der 29. und 30. Juni sind als Preview-Tage für geladenen Gäste vorgesehen.

Der Neustart Kultur ist auch in München Programm.

Mon Müllerschön

Art Consultant / Curator

WHAT PROJECT ARE YOU WORKING ON AT THE MOMENT?

I really love working with young artists. During the lockdown I was shocked to learn that so many young artists were not able to get financial help. I founded a WhatsApp-group called „Support The Artists“ and invited friends, clients, collectors to join. Once a week I am introducing a new artist and his/her work and it works! I am selling art and am able to support artists.

I took it a step further and launched „curatedartists.de“ with my co-curators Benedikt Müller and Alexander Winokurow, a website where we introduce our personal choice of artists.Right now we are working on a concept for a special art fair for upcoming artists, which is supposed to start in 2021. Stay tuned for more information! So exciting!

WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE EPOCH/ART WORK?
Dutch still lifes of the so-called Golden Age (17th century), Classical Greek and Roman Antiquities, Contemporary Art
WHAT ARE YOU PASSIONATE ABOUT (BESIDES ART)?

I am proud to be a member of the worldwide leadership program of the BMW Foundation Herbert Quandt in Munich. It promotes responsible leadership and inspires leaders worldwide to work towards a peaceful, just and sustainable future inspired by the Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations 2030 Agenda.

WHAT DO YOU LIKE ABOUT THE HIGHLIGHTS IN MUNICH?
The answer is quite simple: QUALITY! The array of art and antiques at the fair is phenomenal. Dealers bring their best objects. There is something to be said about the magnificence of seeing masterpieces of creativity, whether they are paintings, sculptures, or else.
And at HIGHLIGHTS you are able to see those pieces in a beautiful surrounding with extravagant booths and wonderful flower arrangements.
CURATOR’S CHOICE – WHAT ARE YOUR TOP 3 HIGHLIGHTS OF THE HIGHLIGHTS 2020?

I am always excited to see what Ira Stehmann brings to the fair and I have to say my expectations were fulfilled, the photographs of Miho Kajioka and Albarrán Cabrera are exquisite!

Since my archaeology studies I am big time into classical Greek and Roman antiquities. The famous Swiss dealer Jean-David Cahn brought a marvellous piece, the Greek marble „Head of an Idol“ (2600 BCE), which is of timeless beauty.

At Kunkel Fine Art I discovered this work by Robert Longo: „Study of Eagle Head“ (2016) in charcoal and ink on paper. Drawing is Longo’s primary medium. Over the past two decades, he has focused on charcoal, creating drawings that demonstrate an extraordinary level of technical virtuosity.

Bernd Schreiber

President of Bayerische Verwaltung der staatlichen Schlösser, Gärten und Seen

WHAT PROJECT ARE YOU WORKING ON AT THE MOMENT?
The preservation of garden art – all garden monuments in Germany face existential difficulties and questions triggered by climate change.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE EPOCH/ART WORK?
The Rococo! This epoch still characterises Bavaria in many ways today. In Munich my favourites are the Cuvilliés Theatre, the Amalienburg and of course the Rich Rooms of the Residenz. The masterpieces of the porcelain manufactories Meissen, Nymphenburg and Frankenthal are also favourites!
WHAT ARE YOU PASSIONATE ABOUT (BESIDES ART)?
For me, art in any form means the communication of emotions by the artist. But whether these emotions reach the viewer and fascinate him in the end, depends on many influences. For me personally, besides the perfect presentation of the work, the School of Seeing plays an outstanding role, especially in Contemporary Art. And this exciting process of learning never ends, thank God! As Goethe already knew: „The best education for a clever person is found in travel.“ In this respect, the answer is simple: traveling!
WHAT DO YOU LIKE ABOUT THE HIGHLIGHTS IN MUNICH?
In short, the HIGHLIGHTS International Art Fair Munich is the meeting place for the art world in the most beautiful ambience and at the highest level in Germany.
CURATOR’S CHOICE – WHAT ARE YOUR TOP 3 HIGHLIGHTS OF THE HIGHLIGHTS 2020?

The Court covered cup (1626-1630) by David Roll offered by Kunstkammer Georg Laue – the magnificent covered cup by master goldsmith David Roll is fascinating by the high quality of its workmanship, which can be observed especially in the flower bouquet of the ornamental finial of the cover.

The large plate (1735) with chinoiseries and Dutch river landscapes by the Meissen manufactory offered by Langeloh Porcelain – this polychrome plateau is a beautiful example for the entanglement of Baroque ornaments and Rococo imagery.

The chest of drawers (1760/1770) from the circle of Frederick the Great offered by Christian Eduard Franke Kunsthandel Bamberg – again a superlative German rococo piece, distinguished by its naturalistic and finely inlaid floral containers.

Stefan F. Höglmeier

Real Estate Developer / Founder of Euroboden and BNKR

WHAT PROJECT ARE YOU WORKING ON AT THE MOMENT?
Our overall project at Euroboden is to bring architectural quality into our cities and to raise awareness for what we call “architectural culture”. We want to demonstrate that architectural uniqueness can be combined with commercial,  ecological and social sustainability.
And I think our new developments, such as the “Derzbachhof” in Forstenried or the office building Hammerschmidt” in the east of Munich, show that it can.
WHAT ARE YOU PASSIONATE ABOUT (BESIDES ART)?

I created a new app: Melon – a digital platform which stemmed from my desire to make vegan food easily accessible to all, thus serving as a catalyst for a much needed nutrition turnaround. 

WHAT DO YOU LIKE ABOUT THE HIGHLIGHTS IN MUNICH?

The big strength of the HIGHLIGHTS is that it combines different art epochs. With this broad view, the HIGHLIGHTS shows that there is a sense of artistic quality and innovation that runs through all artistic and architectural epochs, and that unites architects and artists from the old days until today. 

 

CURATOR’S CHOICE – WHAT ARE YOUR TOP 3 HIGHLIGHTS OF THE
HIGHLIGHTS 2020?

I like Hans Hartung and the way in which he combines different media in his art, preparing for instance his painting with photographic tools. The expressionism of Alexej von Jawlensky appeals to me for the radicalism in which he, and expressionism in general, offers a new way in which to engage with reality. Finally, Christopher Thomas’ photography “Flatiron” captures a lot of the unique spirit of this architectural icon.
