KONST: The ins and outs of running art galleries (with Saskia Neuman)
Saskia Neuman Gallery represents Nordic as well as internationally based artists. The exhibition program reflects a strong focus on early and mid-career artists, often previously not exhibited in Sweden’s commercial gallery sphere. In addition, the gallery aims to host a variety of happenings, including talks, performances and other events.
Prior to opening the gallery Saskia Neuman held the position of CEO of Market Art Fair. Saskia was previously the Director of the Absolut Art Award (The Absolut Company) for seven years. During her career she has worked at neugerriemschneider gallery, KW Institute of Contemporary Art, Berlin, and the Venice Biennale, 2009. She is a monthly contributing writer to Vogue Scandinavia and contributed to publications including The New Era, Scandinavian Mind, Artlover and The Forumist, along with having written for Monocle, LOFT Magazine, 032c, Honoré Magazine and Berlin Art Journal in the past.
KONST is a show by Scandinavian MIND about contemporary and future art; the interconnection with society, culture, technology, finance and lifestyle. The outlook is primarily at the art world from a Scandinavian perspective, although taking into account the global arena of artists, exhibitions, trade fairs and other current events. The host of KONST is Roland-Philippe Kretzschmar, Editor-at-large at Scandinavian MIND.
