“Dear friends of the Galerie Stella A.,

On October 1, 1999 we opened our gallery with a presentation of salt packages named “Stern Salz“ (Star Salt) and called it “Stella Armut”.  Inspired by a pun made by Marcel Duchamp who transformed his name into “Marchand du Sel” as well as the Multiple “Sonnen Salz” (Sun Salt) by George Brecht, we began our exhibition program as “salt sellers” with the Stern Salz-Box as our first edition.

Our vision also followed a maxim by Jonas Mekas. “I want to absorb the subtle, almost invisible things, experiences, emotions and contrast them with the hard, loud, violent activities and especially with the political systems nowadays.”

After 25 years and 112 exhibitions, we will close the gallery at the end of July. We are slowly getting too old for this job – we’re getting slower while the art business is getting faster, in the long run this is not a successful formula.

We would like to express our gratitude to all our friends, artists, collectors, visitors and sympathizers, also thanks to our landlord, the Meisel family, for their generosity, to Susanne Gross for the internet presentation, to Monika Bönisch for her English translations, to Andreas Seltzer for supporting our catalogue and in general, thanks to all who accompanied us on our inspiring, exhilarating journey. So we leave you with all our best wishes, greetings and memories.

Dorle Döpping & Michael Behn

PS: Our website and e-mail-adress will remain.”
