The exhibition and artist agency Hartmann Projects was founded in 2014 by Angelika and Markus Hartmann. In 2016 we founded the publishing house Hartmann Books and have been expanding it ever since. We represent artists*, nationally and internationally, working together with institutions, galleries, collectors, publishers and media. The works of the artists* we have in our programme must convince us and deal with the topics of our time in a creative and intelligent way.
We have our publishing office and our exhibition/gallery room in the Galeriehaus Stuttgart in the city centre, where we regularly show about 5-6 exhibitions per year. We also endeavour to pass on exhibitions to institutions and send them on journeys.
In addition to our ideas and our work, we always rely on happy coincidences, personal encounters and the power of images to overcome cultural, religious and political boundaries.
