The location
By selecting Duesseldorf’s Areal Böhler as the venue of Art Düsseldorf, the fair has positioned itself very well in an ambience different from traditional trade fairs.

The show itself
For the first big Art Fair in Düsseldorf it was an impressive range of regional and international artists and galleries. But in the end, it was just an art fair like many others. Showcasing mainly wall-art. You could see and buy the whole range of art, from total crap to real artistic works, from 3.000 to “better dont talk about”.

What I missed
I missed real street art (OK I know street art doesnt belong into an art fair, but you can photograph it) I missed any of the traditional skilled art such as landscape or portraits. I missed real innovations and grandmasters of art such as photorealistic art. I missed erotic art, nudity, pornography or sensual art in any way.  I missed works of pure deliberate provocation and works with political statement and critical of society. I missed titles, there were so many works called Untitled. Untitled works means for me, that the artist doesnt connect with his work. There is no emotional bound between the work and the artist. It is respectless and showcase an attitude of ignorance and insensebility to his present as an artist and his work.
