I am Martin Schulze and I organize public art projects and exhibitions, primarily in Asia but also in Europe, Australia and the Americas, and sell contemporary art, under the umbrella of Public Delivery (est. 2011).|
I've started out in the art world by working at Sprüth Magers, one of the world's leading contemporary art galleries. Through working there it spurred my interest in the intersection of art and public space, specifically its ability to reach those that don't usually visit museums or galleries.
I now organize and conduct my own exhibitions and other art projects around the world. In 2012 in Busan, Korea, my largest project to date took place, Asia's tallest mural. It happened just shortly before the Busan Biennale opened and, despite working with a much smaller budget and far less personnel, it attracted more visitors and significantly more international attention than the Biennale.
Currently my main focus is working on a series of five museum shows which will take place in five different countries in Asia and Europe between 2014 and 2015. Additionally, I am working on numerous other artistic endeavours like producing several long-term public art projects.
What drives me is a mix of curiosity and megalomania. Naturally, I engage in many different projects but only those that excite me. I've studied Mass Media and Journalism as major and Psychology as minor at the Université de Fribourg and The Chinese University of Hong Kong and also worked at the Staatliche Museen Zu Berlin (public museums of Berlin).
I also help arranging volunteer teachers and fundraising for the school DEAR Burma in Bangkok, which supports Burmese migrant workers in Thailand in order for them to gain educational skills, confidence and improve their lives linguistically, and upon their return to their home, strengthen democracy in Burma.
Born and raised in Germany, I currently enjoy my life in Seoul, South Korea.
