In Hans Mayer, Düsseldorf has an art dealer who has had a decisive influence on the development of art in the Rhineland. From an artistic point of view, the city of Düsseldorf has Hans Mayer to thank for some truly great moments, such as the legendary encounter between Joseph Beuys and Andy Warhol in 1979 or, most recently, the surprise concert by Kraftwerk in his gallery at Grabbeplatz 2.

In his very subtle as well as psychologically profound portrait of Hans Mayer, ZDF filmmaker Werner Raeune has described the international rise of the gallery as well as the great personality of this art dealer.

We are very pleased that Werner Raeune and Hans Mayer talked about the film with the numerous guests that evening.
