Nearly 40 years ago Gerhard Theewen founded Salon magazine with contributions by both known and unknown young artists.
Between 1977 and 1982, eleven issues were published. A special retrospective twelfth issue appeared in 1992 and a reprint of all the issues was compiled in two volumes in 2008.
In the spring of 2016, Salon was revived and again. It has no texts but presents artist’s contributions created especially for the magazine.
Salon No.5 features: Clara Bahlsen, Stephan Baumkötter, Tim Berresheim,Rick Buckley, Peter Duka, Moritz Frei, Bèla Pablo Janssen, Bernhard Kucken, Kristina Lenz, Elmar Mauch, Olaf Metzel, Olaf Nicolai, Alex Silber, Timo Schmidt.
