I am Martin Schulze and I am not an artist, but I work with some of them.
I initiate and facilitate exhibitions and public art projects, mostly in Asia and Europe, and sell contemporary art, all 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. This spurred my interest in the intersection of art and the public space, specifically to reach those that usually don't visit museums or galleries. I believe the interaction with art can be meaningful for everybody.
This is why I now organize and conduct my own exhibitions and other art projects around the world. One of my biggest projects took place in 2012 in Busan, Korea where I organized 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.
A mix of curiosity and megalomania drives me. Naturally, I engage in many different things 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 and co-ran the commercial art space Ruttkowski68.
I enjoy my life in Seoul, South Korea.
