Art is beautiful. But makes a lot of work. — Curt Alexander
Benefit from my extensive experience and my network in the art field – as a designer, curator, gallery director and artist I have developed a comprehensive understanding of artistic issues/approaches/processes and their communication. As a designer, I put my ‘ego‘ behind, either the art, the artist or the gallery stands alone in the foreground, or the graphic design becomes part of the art or the gallery (or the graphic design becomes a component of the art).
Frank Benno Junghanns grew up in an artistic environment (sculptor parents) and was himself artistically active for two decades, mainly with site/space-related and interactive installations. From 1997 to 2010 he curated/organized over 60 exhibitions as 'Kunstwirt' (who worked in the 'field of art') and as director and spiritus rector of the Kunstfaktor Produzentengalerie Berlin. In addition, from 1984 to the present day, he has advised, conceived and organized a similar number of exhibitions and large-scale projects for artists, curators and his father. As a designer, he has produced countless catalogues, printed matter and websites for artists, cultural projects and galleries since 1990.
