The German Series #1 - Anselm Dreher

Sure, Germany may not be the first country that comes to mind when thinking of Basque Berets, but actually, Germany has a well grounded tradition of berets - enough to justify the start of the "German Series". 
I have mentioned (my once favorite) author Heinrich Böll before, the beret as a replacement for Islamic head-scarves, "Tania the Guerilla" and of course, Germany often comes up in relation to WWII. 

But, there is much more; Anslem Dreher, for starters:
"It wasn't easy to be a gallery owner in Berlin, before the fall of the wall. In the east there was always a watchful stasi, while in the west chaos and provincial management reigned. 

Friedrich Loock and Anselm Dreher are still the gallery owners and, 25 years later, look back at eventful times in service of contemporary art."
