After many common projects and collaborations over the past years – a long-standing friendship and a close partnership developed. It’s an essential part of max goelitz, to cooperate with such profiled international partners and to present internationally emerging and established artists for the first time to our local audience here in Germany.

Is there anything you are looking forward to in Munich that is not connected to Various Others?
OMR: Travel itself is so inspiring; no matter the destination, we love the chance to experience the culture of another city...its art scene, its galleries and museums and beyond that, new restaurants and flavors, and really getting our teeth into the local culture wherever we go. Any chance to see old friends and make new ones too, definitely on our list!
