Berlin, 22 June 2011
Raue LLP has advised the family of renowned curator Harry Szeemann (1933 – 2005) on the sale of his archive to the Los Angeles-based Getty Research Institute. Szeemann was one of the most important curators in the second half of the 20th century, and has put his mark on the international exhibition landscape. He has, inter alia, curated exhibitions like Documenta 5 (1972) as well as two Venice Biennales (1999 and 2001). In a period of over 50 years, Szeemann has assembled an unparalleled archive which documents his work and his correspondence with a wide array of artists. The Getty Research Institute will provide for the accessibility of the archive for the public.
