Artist Rosemarie Koczy allegedly faked her Holocaust survivor's story.

"Rosemarie Koczy's works are in the collections of the Guggenheim in New York and of Yad Vashem in Israel. She claimed to be a Jew and Holocaust survivor. Now historians say that her life story was forged."

"Born in 1939 in Recklinghausen, in the Ruhr area, Rosemarie Koczy had been living in the US since the mid-1980s until her death in 2007.

The artist presented herself as a Jew who had survived two concentration camps, as she claimed in her memoir published in 2009.

However, through an exhibition of more than 100 of her works bequeathed to the city of Recklinghausen, historians have raised doubts about her life story, as initially reported by German public radio broadcasters Deutschland Funk and WDR on November 8."

Happy to participate in Independent New York in spring 2018.

The 2018 edition of Independent New York will include 50 international galleries and non-profits, representing 17 cities worldwide. 

Each year Independent rotates 30-40% of its galleries to encourage fresh perspectives and introduce unfamiliar artists to new audiences; this year’s participants include 19 new exhibitors, ranging from emerging galleries to those with decades-long legacies. Matthew Higgs, the director of White Columns, will return as the Independent’s founding curatorial advisor, curating a forum that is an authentic reflection of the gallery landscape and encourages innovative approaches to fair presentations.

The 2018 edition of Independent New York will include many solo, two-artist, and site-driven projects, featuring new work created specifically for Independent as well as scholarly historical presentations.

AUREL ISELSTÖGER
DAVID BURTON and THIAGO UNA

18 November - 21 December 2017
Opening on Saturday, 18th November 2017, 6 - 9 pm

Gallery in Residence: We are delighted to inform you that Rob Tufnell Gallery will be guest in our space November/December 2017

Aurel Iselstöger was born in 1925 in Zagreb and grew up in Vienna as the son of a diplomat. His extraordinary artistic talent was already apparent at an early age. At age fourteen, he was diagnosed as schizophrenic. During the Nazi period this diagnosis would have very likely have led to castration or euthanasia. It is due to the efforts of his pediatrician Hans Asperger, who sent him off to live with a family in the country side, that he could remain out of sight from the Nazis.

After the war, Iselstöger was admitted to Maria Gugging Regional Hospital in Lower Austria. In the 1950s, his œuvre was discovered by psychiatrist Leo Navratil, who included his work in his subsequent publications. In 1970, he took part in the first exhibition entitled Artists from Gugging under the pseudonym 'Aurel' at Galerie Nächst St. Stephan in Vienna. He remained at the hospital until 1979. Aurel Iselstöger died in 2008 at an old age home in Klosterneuburg.

The Estate of Aurel Iselstöger is now represented by Delmes & Zander.

Works by Jesuys Crystiano part of 'In and Out of Africa', October, 7th 2017 – April, 8th 2018, Portugal.

untitled, 08/2012, pencil on paper, 59 x 42 cm
Curated by António Saint Silvestre at Oliva Creative Factory in São João da Madeira.

“In and Out of Africa” and others in the mix that prove that skin colour is a meaningless detail, not only in the overall quality but also in the strength of artistic creation. It’s what we will prove with the introduction of this exhibition with works from the Treger/Saint Silvestre Collection.
“In” artists are mainly contemporary, even if they are marked by a certain “outsider” wave; 
“out” artists are mainly from the “Art Brut” world. 
António Saint Silvestre

HORST ADEMEIT part of the exhibition "Angst" at Museum Dr. Guislain in Gent.

Exhibition poster "Angst", Museum Dr. Guislain Gent

24. 05. 1993, mixed media on Polaroid, 9x 11 cm, Delmes & Zander
Works of Horst Ademeit will be shown as part 
of the exhibition "Angst".
The exhibition Anxiety wants to show the many faces of this emotion, since fear is something of all times and cultures but has always been experienced, cultivated and combatted in a different way. From 'God-fearing' to fear of one's fellow man, from highly personal phobia to mass hysteria.

Outsider Art Symposium on the 09th and 10th November 2017.



The term Outsider Art - originally conceived by Roger Cardinal in 1972 as a translation of the anti-academic Art Brut by Jean Dubuffet - took its own development in large parts of Europe and North America. A variety of stakeholders gather at this symposium to elaborate on and discuss recent developments and project future ones.
