Collector’s Talk with Selim Varol, 01.06.2012, 6.30 p.m.

“my collection, that’s me –
my childhood, my friends, my heroes, my role models, what i enjoy, what moves me.
pictures from my journey: ‘at home i’m a tourist’” (Selim Varol)

The 39-year-old Selim Varol from Düsseldorf with Turkish roots has been collecting toys since his childhood and owns one of the largest collections of figurines in Europe, numbering some 15,000 pieces. A further focus of his collection lies in works by artists who trace their origins back to street art and ‘Pop Surrealism’. One characteristic shared by all the works in this collection is the close link between art and the everyday, as well as their often playful and humorous or subversive character.

In collaboration with Kunstmagazin.
Moderation: Jan Kage
