После снятия карантина столица Германии может недосчитаться тысяч произведений искусства

Over the past two weeks at least three major collector of contemporary art, private collections which were displayed in the walls of the exhibition halls of Berlin, said they plan to take their meetings out of town (and some — and out of the country). Thus, by the time when to resume the access to the museums and galleries (it is expected that it will happen this month), Berlin, in which there are about 400 art galleries and about 8 thousand artists may lose several thousand units of high-end contemporary art.

the Reasons for this are — post-crisis changes in the conditions of rent of exhibition premises and does not meet the expectations of the collectors actions of the authorities — of the Senate of Berlin.

the First collector, announced the closure of its exhibition project in Berlin, became the Swiss Friedrich Christian flick. At the end of April 2020, after a disagreement regarding the terms of use of space Rachelle, which exhibited paintings from his collection, it became known that he made the decision to close the exhibition and by September 2021-го to take a collection of 2.5 thousand items from Berlin to Zurich.

on 7 may 2020 gallery meCollectors Room in the centre of Berlin announced that the exhibition of the private collection of works by Cindy Sherman, Marlene Dumas, Georg Baselitz and the other after the lifting of the quarantine is finally closed: the owner of the collection the billionaire investor Thomas Olbricht decided to return to his native Essen and take the collection along. According to him, the decision was personal, not political, but it is likely that the role played by the fact that the Senate of the city to support tenants froze for five years the rent a few belonging to Olbricht fashionable houses, where he was the landlord.

And on 11 may it became known that the Julia Stoschek — largest collector of video art and multimedia art — is considering the transfer of his collection from the city, as it became known about change of terms of tenancy, which houses the collection. And while the Berlin media blamed for these losses at the indifference of the Senate of the city, the senators claim that in private real estate transactions, their hands are tied. While Stoschek made clear that the decision to take collection of the city caused not so much by higher rents, as the absence of active operations of the city and alternative solutions to this issue — such as placing her collection in one of the state museums.

Now Berlin was in a difficult situation when the programme of assistance and support to small businesses, as it turned out, not always going to benefit the business major collectors. And now the city needs to solve an important issue: how to support thousands of artists and to keep the welfare of dozens of collectors who previously bought the work of these artists and have to buy in the future.
