With a Probability of Being Seen. Dorothee and Konrad Fischer: Archives of an Attitude

Konrad Fischer (1939–1996) wrote art history in 1967 with the gallery he opened in Düsseldorf, especially in ­promoting minimalist and conceptual art. Many artists who today have international standing were able to present their first ever solo exhibition or their European debut in his gallery at the time. This publication honors Konrad Fischer’s life achievements as a gallerist and curator and also as an artist. The unique collection that Konrad Fischer, together with his wife Dorothee, assembled is introduced here ­comprehensively for the first time, as well as works by Carl Andre, On Kawara, Richard Long, Sol LeWitt, Mario Merz, Bruce Nauman, Robert Ryman and Thomas Schütte.
