Gallery is an integral part of ART COLOGNE

For more than 30 years, the Samuelis Baumgarte Gallery from Bielefeld has been an integral part of ART COLOGNE in Cologne. Mr. Alexander Baumgarte, second generation since the founding of the gallery in 1965, names artists of classical modernism as the specialty of his 1000 square meter gallery. He distinguishes between classical modernism and modern classics, international postwar positions and new emerging positions.

Artist Amanda Chiarucci - Works in origami technique

Galerie Samuel Baumgarte has been representing the northern Italian artist Amanda Chiarucci exclusively for Germany for 3 years. Her works are created using the origami technique. The artist has several identities due to her origins. Her family has Italian, South American and Georgian roots. She incorporates this theme into her works, using old newspapers, books, telephone directories and texts from these countries and folding them into three-dimensional installations of various kinds using the origami technique.

All the artists on show are strongly concerned with the theme of identity: identity to be found, changing identity, the emotions and associations that people experience in the course of a lifetime when they discover and possibly reject their true self. It is about joy, fear and horror on the one hand, but fundamentally about life, the abysses and the depths that one can learn to recognize.
