Dr. h. c. Lutz Teutloff
Entrepreneur, Gallery Owner, Philanthropist
As an entrepreneur, gallery owner and organizer of exhibitions, Lutz Teutloff has spent many years assembling a collection that celebrates the myriad aspects of “THE CONTEMPORARY FAMILY OF MAN”.
His preferred medium is contemporary photography which in its wider sense also encompasses photo- and video-installations.
Alongside topics of social and political relevance, works of art portraying the human body have become a source of ever-increasing fascination. One of his collection's aims - is to make a thematic exploration of all facets of the “Human Body” from inception to its death, in every kind and variety of human existence. Of paramount interest here is the multifaceted role of the human body in contemporary society as a mirror of beauty, ephemerality, vulnerability, sexuality and the future.
