Martin Leyer-Pritzkow, Curator for young and emerging art, Munich, düsseldorf, venedig, art curator, artdealer, author Martin Leyer-Pritzkow in the exhibition H50 21 k, in Munich 2016



Martin Leyer-Pritzkow is an independent curator for contemporary art in Düsseldorf.

He runs the oldest exhibition space or "Offroom" in Düsseldorf and probably even in Germany.

Martin Leyer-Pritzkow has been exhibiting young and upcoming artists for more than 23 years in his private spaces. In other words, in the rooms in which he lives. He thus invites them to his home. The guests of his exhibitions thus experience young and often museum-like art in a very private atmosphere.

Outside the invitations for selected guests, his exhibitions can only be seen by prior arrangement. Of course you can buy art from him and also buy it on Facebook, instagram or by email.

It is therefore not a gallery or a museum. So something in between and therefore in so called "New German"  an "Offroom".

He sees himself as a curator because it is his concern to exhibit his artists internationally and to contribute to the discourse of their works. For example in Miami, Venice, Munich, etc.

In addition, he was the first German after Mies van der Rohe to teach at the Accademia di Belle Arti di Venezia in Venice for nine years longer.

As an author, he wrote the first book on the quality characteristics of contemporary art more than 14 years ago.
