On Mark Lombardi, I recently started my own project: Lombardi Networks – Towards the complete Mark Lombardi digital.
An interesting short feature on Mark Lombardi (in German) is this:
I support Gute Aussichten by buying some works and editions. I am a member of Haus am Waldsee – Freunde und Förderer e.V., C/O Berlin Friends e.V., Verein der Freunde der Nationalgalerie, and Förderverein Berlinische Galerie.
I wrote a catalog text for PREVIEW BERLIN – THE EMERGING ART FAIR discussing how information technology could drive innovation in the art market (deutsche Version hier). From time to time, I give talks on my digital research on Mark Lombardi.
