Herr Fischer bittet zu Tisch: The Video

Herr Fischer bittet zu Tisch from faust & heisler on Vimeo.

For more then two years photographer Jo Fischer is touring Germany with his project "Herr Fischer bittet zu Tisch". He invites people to take a seat at his table, arranging characteristic pictures of people within seconds - and with one shot only. Already more than 1.800 guests sat at the always same wooden table in front of plain backcloth. Since the beginning, the setting (table & background) has been arranged in more than 20 cities in Germany and Switzerland. This project is an ongoing process, and is planned to visit many other places and possibly countries in the future.

From housewifes to kids, rockers & burlesque dancers, blue- or white-collar workers: Everybody is invited to bring their own personality to the table. The results are a a cross section through society as portraits in black & white.

On April 28, 2012 "Herr Fischer bittet zu Tisch" was arranged at the Hamburger Deichtorhallen as part of the "Lange Nacht der Museen" ("Night of the Museums"), and while thousands of people visited this event, between 8 p.m. and midnight over 150 of them took the opportunity and sat down at Jo's table, getting their photo taken - and taking a printout with them right away.

faust&heisler accompanied Jo the whole day long, documenting a busy and crazy day in the life of "Herr Fischer bittet zu Tisch".

Summer is here, and we've put a great collection of works by heliumcowboy artists up on our walls to sweeten this time even more. The show is called "Ein Sommer mit alten Freunden" (A Summer with old friends"), because we exhibit a selection of works that were created between 2006 and 2012 from our resident artists that we will never get tired of showing.


In case you are interested in purchasing any of the works, please contact us by mail or via facebook. A pricelist can be downloaded here.

The show is over ... but big things coming up.

(click image to view photos from the exhibition)Our fantastic exhibition with artist duo ADAMEVA is over. Since April 7, we've been living in 60ies-meets-80ies-meets-pop-art-of-today frenzy here on the Ranch. heliumcowboy loves ADAMEVA, and we're all so happy that you've grazed this place with your wonderful art. 

After removing miles and miles of Gaffa-tape from the walls and getting them back to gallery standards (erm ... white), next week we'll set up an in-between group show for the duration of summer. It's going to be a blend of works from our resident artists like Nina Braun, Jo Fischer, Alex Diamond, Jon Burgerman - and we also continue to show some paintings by ADAMEVA. More info soon.

End of August/early September we'll have very special guests here from New York: Lori Zimmer will be curating a spectacular group exhibition, set up in an evenly spectacular environment (build by Ryan Brennan) inside our gallery. The show opens September 1st, and we'll let you know more about all this shortly.

On October 6, Feinkunst Krüger, Das Magazin (run by der artlawyer) and heliumcowboy will kick off the 2nd gallery walk within the borders of Hamburg-Neustadt. This time, we'll have a few other art places on the route as well ...

At heliumcowboy, we'll celebrate this event by inviting a big line-up of international artists to our city, joined by some of our regulars. They will create a very intense gallery experience for our guests that night, just through the intensity of their work. All the different angles and styles we'll combine in this exhibition will present an amazing showcase, giving a great insight into an established contemporary art scene of today that still has the sweet taste of underground between its fangs. 

Funny blog post, teasing you with amazing shows - without any artist names. We are still in the process of outlining the final details for the exhibitions in September and October, so we will keep quiet a short while longer. No worries, it'll be worth the wait.  


ADAMEVA: Finissage, May 24

Our current exhibition ADAMEVA closes this week. We'll celebrate one more time with a Finissage this thursday, May 24, from 7 - 11 p.m.!




Jo Fischer & Alex Diamond collaboration.

 (Alex Diamond & Jo Fischer, "Va Belou", drawing with ink pens on ORIGINAL JO FISCHER PHOTOGRAPHY (Giclée on Tetenal semi matt paper 240gr, 21 x 29,7 cm, 2012)Alex Diamond's Magazine Drawings are back: between 2007 - 2008, Diamond produced a large quantity of these drawings for exhibitions in Hamburg and New York, which sold out immediately. Drawn straight into the magazines with fine ink pens, they are on-the-road, instant artworks. 

Since today, three very unique drawings are online: for the first time, Alex Diamond collaborates with Jo Fischer, applying the same style and technique as in the magazine drawings series over original photographs by Jo. These works come signed by both artists.

The Magazine Drawings-series run outside of most of the things Alex Diamond does, and you can only purchase them through his online-shop at etsy.com. Better be quick, they tend to sell out fast. However, the shop is updated with new work quite frequently.
