For more than half a century Gunter Sachs was not only one of the most colorful, but also one of the most misinterpreted personalities in public life. As much as his extrovert lifestyle made him a “lover of beautiful women” in public perception, so did he devote his entire career as a “lover of the fine arts”. Art collector, patron, gallery owner, curator, friend of the arts and artists, but above all successful photographer and filmmaker, he led his life not only for art, but undoubtedly always with it.
On display are numerous photographs by Gunter Sachs presented in the context of his photography collection, which include works from the 1930s to the present by well-known artists such as Andreas Feininger and Andy Warhol. The exhibition is rounded off with works by renowned artists from his famous private collection, which are related to his own photographic work and disclose art historical influences in his works.
