The Konrad Fischer Years / 1964-1978
Konrad Fischer opened his exhibition space in 1967 with the first European solo presentation of Carl Andre. Located in a converted alley in Düsseldorf, the gallery offered a platform for emerging international artists. Through his exhibition programme, Fischer enabled contact between European and American artists, transforming Düsseldorf into an international hot spot. With this book, the Herbert Foundation pays homage to the atypical art dealer who left an undeniable mark on its collection. The subjective reflection on Fischer’s activities and role within the international art world of the time includes a reprint of Fischer’s first interview in 1971 and a critical essay by Lynda Morris.
