IF WE GO FOR THE EASY WAY, WE NEVER CHANGE.
Dear art lovers, collectors, collaboration partners, artists, journalists, friends, and family,
I would like to thank you for your trust in our exciting venture last year and invite you to get inspired by our mission in 2021.
After realising many years ago that there is a need to help people navigate the art world and offer artists new ways to present their art, in 2017 I started a new and innovative approach in art selection, production, presentation, and promotion. The art market is currently going through a massive transformation; therefore, I aim to push boundaries, reach new audiences, and at the same time, offer new solutions for artists.
RPR ART’s mission is to make the art world accessible to everyone, to help you find art you enjoy and invest wisely, so that our clients will be happy with their art choices in the long run.
We give guidance and price transparency in an otherwise opaque art market and provide art knowledge, services, and independent advisory for individuals, companies, family offices, public institutions, and artists.
We offer only a very small selection of art, focussing on the best talents from academies, strategically supporting their careers, and selecting the best blue-chip art for art investment strategies for our clients.
ARTISTS' RESIDENCY FOR ART PRODUCTION AND CURATION OF ART EXHIBITIONS
To provide creative conditions for our artists’ art production, we have set up an artists’ residency in Mallorca, Spain, hosted by internationally established artist Amparo Sard.
This year, we were able to contribute to realising one of the few public exhibitions that physically opened: The International exhibition IDENTITÄT for the Jewish Community in Frankfurt opened its doors to the public thanks to the courage of Marc Grünbaum, Daniela Lewin, and Sonja Roos, and the support of the Department of Cultural Affairs of the State of Hesse and the City of Frankfurt. The jury, consisting of Prof. Bernd Kracke, President of Hochschule für Gestaltung Offenbach (HfG), Iris Hasler, Städel Museum, and Ina Lockhart, F.A.Z., also contributed to the realisation of the project. The Jewish Community has awarded its first Art Prize to Raphael Brunk.

STRATEGIC PARTNERSHIPS WITH COMPANIES FOR NEW FORMS OF ART PRESENTATION
Over the years, great collaborations with Engel & Völkers, VELTINS, and Städel Club have helped to present art on innovative platforms to a new audience. In 2020, thanks to Simone Podlich, we were able to expand the presentation of art on thousands of screens across Germany at airports and shopping malls with video clips by Bernhard Adams and Raphael Brunk in collaboration with one of Germany’s leading media providers, Cittadino.
With the goal of expanding the boundaries of art presentation, we started the digital presentation of our ARTSPACE NEXUS as early as 2019. It was also used in 2020 for exhibitions by Michal Raz, Sophie Heinrich, Raphael Brunk, Johanna Clara Becker, and Amparo Sard, supported by the Spanish foundation Acción Cultural Española (AC/E).

INNOVATIVE PUBLIC RELATIONS AND PRESS COVERAGE
We continue to give art a face: our interviews with promising artists from academies invite you to learn more about art production and the artists’ intentions. Many of them are published in the art magazine kunstbar, thanks to Dr. Christoph Blank.
Our thanks go to Frank Doll at WirtschaftsWoche, Germany’s leading business magazine, which offers its readers access to the art world in the great article “The New Gold”. Thank you also to Clemens Schömann-Finck at FOCUS ONLINE, Michael Lennert and Antje Schiffler at Deutsche Pensions- & Investment Nachrichten (dpn), and Edda Rössler at Frankfurter Neue Presse (FNP) for their coverage.
We experienced an overwhelming response from all over Germany. To quote Malte Fischer at WirtschaftsWoche: “Perhaps some people need to be kissed awake for art”.
Thank you to all of you – our clients, artists, collaboration partners, and journalists for taking part in our venture and believing in our mission. Although we face challenging times, the current conditions could not be better to transform the art market and provide access to all. Our concept and unique approach are constantly developed further in collaboration with artists, especially with Bernhard Adams and Raphael Brunk. Without their input, we would not be where we are now.
The year 2021 will be exciting with upcoming exhibition projects in our ARTSPACE NEXUS, a new collaboration with a well-known brand in Germany, book projects with a large publishing house, and the creation and production of a stained-glass window for a church.
We look forward to bringing you new inspiration, access to art and artists, and innovative art ideas this year!
PS: Due to the huge success in our Lockdown editions the artists and I have decided that we will offer limited editions for special occasions ongoing - in our newly opened art boutique. Discover new art in 2021!
