Munich Contempo is a new international contemporary art fair that seeks its success in the secret capital of Germany, Munich. Munich is know for its Oktoberfest that takes place just these days. According to the initiators of the fair, this attracts a lot of wealthy visitors from abroad, and Munich Contempo wants to take advantage of that by running concurrently to the big Bier und Sauerkraut party.
VernissageTV visited the fair during the press preview and spoke with several gallerists, German media artist Klaus vom Bruch, and architects Florian Schmidhuber and Fabian Ochs (O.S.A.). Klaus vom Bruch has a special exhibition with Françoise Heitsch Gallery (Munich), Derya Demir (Galeri NON, Istanbul) presents works by Extramücadele (Extrastruggle); Klaus Kiefer (Galerie KK, Essen, Germany) introduces us to the work of Yongbo Zhao; Manuela Huber (Arthobler Gallery, Lisbon and Porto, Portugal) explains the video works of Jakub Nepras; and Matthias Hauser (Galeria Hauser, A Coruna, Spain) talks about the work of Regina Silveira.
