About Hartmann Projects
The exhibition- and artist agency Hartmann Projects was founded by Angelika and Markus Hartmann in 2014. Together with Nadine Engler we started Hartmann Books in 2016. We represent artists nationally and internationally, working with institutions, galleries, collectors, publishers, and the media. We search for artists whose pictures we find persuasive and relevant and present them to the public in exhibitions (public and private) and in books using all existing (and future) media we consider helpful. We strongly believe in coincidences and the power of pictures that help to overcome cultural, religious and political boundaries. Our publishing program reflects our personal taste and ideas and is built on the conviction that books are still a relevant medium in human culture.
