VernissageTV turns 500

We are celebrating our 500th episode! With an anniversary post that is, for a change, not a report on an art opening or an interview with a dealer or an artist. Rather, this video, entitled “500” is a retrospective view on the last year and a half of VernissageTV.
This video is also available as DVD. Press Release available at OpenPR: English / German.

“500” recalls moments with artists, such as Robert Rauschenberg, fair directors, such as Samuel Keller, curators, such as Bice Curiger, designers, such as Konstantin Grcic, and architects, such as Zaha Hadid; scenes from exhibitions, private views and events, such as the Jeff Wall retrospective at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the opening of the Art Basel Miami Beach, or the after-show party of the Jonathan Meese exhibition at the Deichtorhallen in Hamburg. This video brings the viewer to the Art Positions containers on the beach of Miami, to the art hangar of Red Bull boss Dietrich Mateschitz, and finally, to a dash down the metallic slide created by Carsten Höller at the Tate Modern in London.
The overwhelming success of the Vernissage TV art project wouldn’t have been possible without the commitment of the team, the open-mindedness and support of the protagonists of the art scene, and the response from our viewers and fans all over the world. “500” is also an homage to VTV’s audience, the protagonists of the art scene, and the team. Special thanks go to our correspondents: Theodore Bouloukos (New York); Parichard Holm, Gerold Wunstel and Slim K (Los Angeles); Althea Viafora-Kress; Pau Waelder (everywhere); Lilli Kuschel, Mikko Gaestel, Christian Asbach and Lizza May David (Berlin).
