Thole Rotermund

Thole Rotermund

came into contact with Henri Nannen while still at school. Nannen, the celebrated German journalist and modern art collector who founded the Kunsthalle in Emden, sparked Rotermund's love affair with classical modern art. This set him on his future career path and motivated him to move to Hamburg to study literature and art history. Study trips to San Francisco and Munich followed. He graduated with a master's degree and worked on a number of freelance art projects. In 1997, he took up a post as expert for modern art at the international auction house Villa Grisebach in Berlin. Three years later he returned to Hamburg to set up a dealership, combining his enthusiasm for modern art with professional commitment. He started out as a specialist in classical modern works on paper and has since established his gallery Thole Rotermund Kunsthandel – as one of Europe's leading dealerships in modern art. The gallery enjoys contacts with a strong network of international clients as well as important international collectors, both private and institutional. In addition, Thole Rotermund is member of the board of the 'Bundesverband deutscher Galerien und Kunsthändler' (Association of German Galleries and Art Dealers).

Andrea Berger

was exposed to the world of art and music from a very early age. These early impressions were to make a lasting impact on her. A traineeship at the Hamburger Kunsthalle strengthened her resolve to study art history in Hamburg. She first met art dealer Thole Rotermund in 2005 while assisting in the prints and drawings department of the Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe and joined the team of Thole Rotermund Kunsthandel after graduation. She also collaborated on a catalogue raisonné of the works of Offenburg artist Gretel Haas-Gerber. In 2010 she moved to Berlin where she worked as research assistant to Berlin gallerist Michael Haas and enjoyed exploring Berlin’s vibrant arts scene. After the birth of two children she and her family relocated to Hamburg. Since winter of 2015, she has been responsible for gallery management, exhibition and project management as well as press and public relations at Thole Rotermund Kunsthandel.

was born into a family with strong artistic interests. Her own enthusiasm for art was kindled by a study trip to Florence shortly after her Abitur. She decided to study art history and history at Göttingen University and in Berlin. She gained valuable practical experience working for leading German museums like the Nationalgalerie in Berlin and the Kunstsammlungen in Dresden - with the aim of working in the fine art business. In 2006 she was awarded a Gerda-Henkel Scholarship to work on a PhD on the Berlin Orientalist Wilhelm Gentz. She worked as a volunteer at the Hamburg auction house Hauswedell & Nolte.

Kerstin Peters

Kerstin Peters

grew up in the western outskirts of Hamburg. A chance encounter with the artist Horst Janssen in the early 1990s developed into a close friendship and it was his lively input that significantly deepened her interest in modern art.
After completing her training in publishing at the Axel Springer Verlag, she worked for a number of years in office management and team assistance. She then decided to branch out as a freelancer and spent the following 10 years working in PR and cultural management, three years of which included organising exhibitions, literary events and concerts for the municipality of Rellingen. But she did not neglect her own further education and obtained an academic qualification as a mature student, graduating with a bachelor’s degree in literary studies and Japanese studies at the age of forty-four. Her enthusiasm for the medium of paper springs from her appreciation and understanding of Japanese culture. She joined the team at Thole Rotermund Kunsthandel in February 2018, bringing a wealth of organisational skills and experience to the job of overseeing the entire back office.
