The influential German gallerist Paul Maenz discusses working with artists Keith Haring, Albert Oehlen and Anselm Kiefer.
Across a long and successful career, Paul Maenz stressed that the real purpose of an art gallery should be to serve art in the purest form possible. ‘Its nature is related to the nature of art itself, and that means change,’ he would explain.
Born in 1939 in Gelsenkirchen, Germany, Maenz would become an important gallerist, introducing new waves of avant-garde artists to European and American audiences in the 1970s and ’80s. Operating during a time of rapid change in the art world, his Cologne gallery was instrumental in establishing the city as a centre of cultural innovation. Working closely with artists, curators and critics, Maenz gave voice to pioneering movements of the time, such as Conceptualism, Italian Transavanguardia and Neo-Expressionism.
