An art collection with character

Since 1971, when Dr. Hans Günter Heuking and Dr. Wolfgang Kühn established the law firm, works of art have been acquired for the offices, hallways, and conference rooms that collectively show two things: the personal advice and expertise given most notably by gallery owner Hans Mayer and his former colleague Hete Hünermann, and also – to an increasing extent in recent years – independent discoveries made by Dr. Wolfgang Kühn in the galleries of Berlin or while attending tours of the Düsseldorf Academy of Art.

The catalogue was published on the occasion of the 45th anniversary of the law firm of Heuking Kühn Lüer Wojtek, established by Dr. Hans Günter Heuking and Dr. Wolfgang Kühn, who celebrated his birthday. "It is almost a hallmark of our office that we live and work with art. And that is important. If you're setting off to your job in the morning knowing you're going to spend the next ten hours there - lawyers have long hours - then there has to be something there for the soul." (Quote by Dr. Wolfgang Kühn in an interview with Thomas W. Kuhn, excerpt from the catalogue, p. 14) Editor: Heuking Kühn Lüer Wojtek, Düsseldorf 2016 | Text: Thomas W. Kuhn
