Walter Conrads and Helga Weckop-Conrads founded CONRADS in Duesseldorf in 1992. From it´s inception, the gallery´s exhibition program presents both, new and mid-career photographers, creating a dialog between different generations of artists of different cultural backgrounds and working with all media. Though the form and focus of these artists' work varies significantly, their practices overlap in a number of key areas: an engagement with general and fundamental themes that culture has historically dealt with, an interest in aesthetics and a willingness to engage with the poetic as well as the critical and the political. Cooperation with other institutions is an essential part of the gallery´s conception. Conrads publishes monographs of artists represented by the gallery and participate in international artfairs since 1992.
