Galerie Rüdiger Schöttle: Elevating Conceptual Art
In the 1970s, one of the main activities of the gallery was the presentation of conceptual art. In those years, the gallery presented the works of such artists as Douglas Huebler, Daniel Buren, Ian Wilson, Lawrence Weiner, and On Kawara. The conceptual content, exploration of the relationship between art and reality, and critical reflection on the art context continue to serve as the shared, intergenerational, and interdisciplinary bond among Rüdiger Schöttle Gallery's artists.
During the 1980s and 1990s, Rüdiger Schöttle, the owner, curator, and essayist, embarked on a program that embraced a partial return of narrative elements and a re-evaluation of images. Additionally, since the 1980s, the gallery program has placed emphasis on the renowned Düsseldorf School of Photography.
