Berlin, 20 October 2017 (kk) - They just can't stop collecting. Dr. Harald Frisch and his wife Kornelia have been pursuing their passion for art for more than 50 years. In doing so they put a focus on new and different positions in art. The art lovers will present around 35 works from their unconventional collection at Ketterer Kunst in Berlin as of 15 December.

"I am delighted that we were able to win the collection of Dr. Harald and Kornelia Frisch, as this is the first time that our gallery in Berlin presents a collection from the capital that reflects the city‘s spirit in such a remarkable manner", says Robert Ketterer, owner of the Munich art auctioneer Ketterer Kunst. He continues: "The works have a very special aesthetic value, they have rough edges. They are bizarre, morbid, phantasmagorical and, first and foremost, they are characterized by a quest for ever new perspectives".

The collection's rich diversity is owed to the couple‘s distinct ideas and passion. With great joy they go on discovery tours to artist's workshops, as the personal exchange is a heart matter to the two art lovers. Understanding the artist's idea, intention and position is as important as the artwork itself.

At first sight the collection may appear to be quite heterogeneous, however, the artists primarily have one thing in common: their unadapted artistic positions. Next to surreal landscapes and mythological imagery we also find fantastical mythical creatures that appeal to the observer's subconsciousness. The enigmatic contents are captivating and allow us to submerge in entirely different worlds.
