LISTE Director Peter Bläuer on what gallerists do for the artists: “we have a lot of artist-run spaces. But the difference is that they don’t represent the artists. It’s a very different concept—they’ll show an artist, but they don’t represent them, they won’t show them a second or third time, and the don’t make the connections to museums.The gallerist has a different profile. He’s the manager of an artist. I think the way it works is that the young gallerists go to the artist-run projects to look for new artists, but, in the end, the artists would like to be represented, and it’s still the gallery that does this work.”
