Heinz-Günter Mebusch

We will never forget our friend, the photographer and conceptual artist Heinz-Günter Mebusch (1952 - 2001). Mebusch was a unique personality of a deeply sensitive and empathic character and a visionary artist. On the traditional basis of subjective photography of his teacher Otto Steinert, he created an extensive photographic and multimedia work. Respected and worldwide known i.a. through his epochal portraitures with about 250 significant artists of his time, his work became at last part of art history. Mebusch, the globetrotter, admonisher and communicator of various worlds, died very early, but remains forever in memory.

 

Jannis Kounellis

On 16th February 2017 our friend, the Greek artist Jannis Kounellis, one of the leading figures of the Arte Povera movement, died in Rome’s Villa Mafalda hospital.

Born in Piraeus, Greece in 1936, the artist moved to Rome at the age of 20 to study at the Academy of Fine Arts and considered the Eternal City his adopted home, where he continued to live and work. But he still had his roots in Greece and was connected very deep with his homeland. We honor him and keep him in good memory. Farewell!
