Dr. Jörg Garbrecht becomes Director of the Alexander Tutsek-Stiftung
Since 1 October, Dr. Jörg Garbrecht has strengthened the team of the Alexander Tutsek-Stiftung as director. The art historian studied at the University of St. Andrews and received his doctorate from Oxford University. He has worked at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Tate Modern, the National Museums in Berlin, the Nolde Foundation in Seebüll and Berlin, whose branch at the Gendarmenmarkt he established and directed, and the municipal Kunsthalle Mannheim. Most recently, he was senior curator at the Art and Nature Foundation of entrepreneur Susanne Klatten.
“To have won Dr. Jörg Garbrecht as director for the Alexander Tutsek-Stiftung gives me great pleasure,” says Eva-Maria Fahrner-Tutsek, chairwoman of the foundation’s board. “Mr. Garbrecht is a proven foundation manager with a broad, international wealth of experience and an imaginative exhibition curator. His expertise will strengthen and have a far-reaching impact on the successful work of our foundation.”
Jörg Garbrecht curates exhibitions ranging from Art Nouveau to contemporary art, he is a guest speaker and author of numerous catalogs and art historical articles. He has diverse experience with new museum buildings, repositioning and dynamizing collections in terms of content, and sustainable destination management.
“Good art is a sensual and intellectual supercharger that touches and moves us far beyond our immediate encounter in the exhibition space,” says Jörg Garbrecht. “With its Villa and the new BlackBox, the Alexander Tutsek-Stiftung offers predestined locations for this very special art experience.”
