We started photo basel art fair in 2015 in Basel parallel to Art Basel. So over time more and more stakeholders started asking us to organise something in Zürich. This is how the Art Salon Zürich was born.

That it is like in any other business, there are friendships to be made but also competition.
Since my godfather is a renowned painter in Switzerland, I was given many artworks throughout my childhood and teenage years. The first piece I bought was a photograph by the Swiss/Danish duo Putput - they are doing our key visual every year.
That NFTs do not democratise the art world.
For this Art Salon Zürich, I am keen on learning more about Philipp Keel’s work (Galerie Bildhalle), I also love Patric Sandri’s work (Multipleart), the recently deceased Swiss photographer, Roger Humbert (Galerie Fabian & Claude Walter) with his Konkrete Fotografie appeals to me as well. I’m excited to see Talaya Schmid’s work in real life as I have just seen it on the computer screen.
Great questions - just today I started following Limna.

Roger Humbert: he was a pioneer of concrete photography - a one-of-a-kind. I also think that Janik Bürgin has a steep career ahead of him.
They are all sharks.
By not listening but seeing and feeling art. If you like a piece, don’t listen - buy it with your eyes, not with your ears. In addition, you should really like the piece and consider living with it. Don’t put it in a vault.
