With this post, we start a new series: VernissageTV Curated. With VernissageTV Curated we want to bring episodes from our vast archive that already comprises of over 1000 videos back into the limelight. With this in mind, we ask artists, gallerists, curators and other art professionals to name their personal top ten. Videos they like the most or those who make a perfect match.
We are very happy to present VernissageTV Curated No. 1, the top ten videos selected by German art collector Thomas Grässlin.
VernissageTV’s video documentaries are very informative and always provide a good insight into the respective exhibition even if you didn’t have the opportunity to see them live. They are a good replacement for a missed visit.
Thomas Grässlin is a shareholder of the Grässlin Collection with the Kunstraum Grässlin and the project Räume für Kunst in St. Georgen / Germany, and organizer of his own art space project Räume für Kunst und Scholz, along with his wife Nanette Hagstotz, Stefanie Benzing and Gregor Scholz. The first exhibition was Vincent Tavenne: Sender / Äther / Empfänger in various places (Speisemeisterei Schloss Hohenheim, Institut Français, Diemershalde, City Hall Stuttgart, Hospitalhof, and Café Scholz.
We have selected the videos that have best met the above criteria and that have shown artists we are especially interested in. The choice was not easy, because there are so many good videos there.
