The multifaceted creator, artist, collector, gallery owner and curator Konrad Fischer (Düsseldorf, 1939-1996) played a highly influential role in the conceptual art and minimalism of the sixties and seventies, and also introduced the major American artists of his generation to Europe.

In 1967 he opened a gallery at 12 Neubrückstrasse, a narrow street in downtown Düsseldorf, quickly turning it into a laboratory for his brilliant ideas. Fischer was also an enormous influence on a generation of artists who led one of last avant-garde movements in Western art during the second half of the twentieth century.

Son[i]a talks to Brigitte Kölle, author of the book "okey dokey Konrad Fischer", about the life and personality of this key figure in Western contemporary art.
