Long term Liste director, Peter Bläuer, who also co-founded the fair, retired earlier this year and just last week, we learned who is the lucky one to follow. The fair announced that Joanna Kamm has been hired to replace him, starting September 1.
Kamm is a former art dealer who founded Galerie Kamm in Berlin in 2001 and operated it through 2014. Most recently, Kamm co-curated a show at BNKR Munich, titled “Stop Making Sense, it’s as good as it gets,” which included a series of events exploring art, architecture and literature.
Kamm was selected by a committee of six.
