Heinz-Günter Mebusch

We will never forget our friend, the photographer and conceptual artist Heinz-Günter Mebusch (1952 – 2001).

Mebusch was a unique combination of a deeply sensitive and empathic person and a visionary artist. On the traditional basis of subjective photography of his teacher Otto Steinert, he created under the brand name The Flying Studios International an extensive photographic work and developed it to an extraordinary multi media body. Respected and worldwide known i.a. through his epochal portraitures with about 250 significant artists of his time, his work became at last part of art history. Mebusch, the globetrotter, admonisher and communicator of various worlds, died very early, but remains forever in memory.

ArtExpert - Vera Isler-Leiner

The object maker and photographer Vera Isler-Leiner (* 1931) joined us for many years as a friend and inspiring artist. She was an absolutly impressive and extraordinary person. Born in Berlin of Jewish origin and survivor of the mass murder of the Nazis, she was at home in Switzerland, but lived and worked as well in Nice and New York. Characteristic for Isler's multi-facetted oeuvre are self-contained artistic and thematic creative phases. Between 1978 and 1984 she dealt extensively with objects and Reliefs on the subject of genetics and genetic research. Later she moved to photography. At the center of Vera Isler's photographic work has been portrait photography since the 1990s, which brought her international recognition. Inspired by Heinz-Günter Mebusch, she developed her own style, creating large-scale portraits of famous artists consistently in their own environment. At the age, she rejuvenated anothermvery fresh group of works with video and stills: Bits + Pieces, where she set people of the infamous 42nd Street in New York a monument before it was cleaned on the orders of the former mayor, Rudolph Giuliani.
