]dedicated collectors

We discover relevant perspectives, merits, editorial keynotes and artists' expositions we do look upon favorably. We work within the fields of art concepts, critics, texts about artworks and expositions, and we stand for independent press in the art market and mainly support the visions of artists and the interests of collectors. That is the reason we called us ]dedicated collectors. Here you can find insides from behind the scenes, news about important researches, recommendations where to go and a critic view of several processes we recognized in arty contexts or changes of attitudes/behaviour. In cooperation with the Collectors Club in Berlin we created the collectors' circle: We always carry most about the collectors’ and artists' connection. art concepts & pr | critics | collectors’ and artists' connection | corporate art, purchasing, Salons and exhibitions.
