The conditions for many galleries are quite different to previous gold days and the selling seems to drop down in all aspects nearly wherever you turn your eyes. The previous gallery owners I have spoken to could not afford the huge amounts of rent, electricity, PR and announcements anymore plus of course salaries to be paid the staff, why the key was turned as a consequence of a very low income if any.

The alternative will in many cases be either to stop own productions or a start as gallery owner including the risks that might follow. Recently I happen to see a group of artists exhibiting without a gallery behind in financial terms and the outcome will be seen when the exhibition period is finished.

Well, it might be workable for a period, but as one of the artists told me they already had a lot of difficulties to sort out – who should be on watch, clean the toilets, vacuum and many other financial issues.


The overall status for artists, musicians, actors, singers and others working in the fields of culture is still a slow fox in many areas, but also a time for new and may be better ways to arrange and promote events, exhibitions and concerts throughout the European countries.

During the tour to Berlin ¤ Munich ¤ Vienna ¤ Cologne I will take some of my own proposals with me as well as the possibilities for a co-operation with EU, bigger private companies and other public institutions and organizations. We can do a lot by own means, but together a lot more and the prospects for future projects and living areas will be much more orientated to group works that ever. It is needless to say of course, that such implementations can take some time until the fruit will fall down from the efforts made in work and establishments.

I`m looking forward to seeing all those attending these social events so far established and hopefully in a good spirit that gives and takes in all aspects of communication and facts to be realized at a later stage.

All the best from – Kurt Lykke Lindved
