Marion Ackermann, art ambassador

Museum, not temple

Marion Ackermann 1It’s an incredible skill set that is required. Budget and finance. Purchasing. Personnel management. Lobbying and politicking. Not to mention the art. That’s just some of what you have to bring to the table if you’re going to run one of Germany’s top modern art collections. And she does: Marion Ackermann, my latest guest on Talking Germany, is the head of Art Collection North Rhine-Westphalia in Düsseldorf.

Marion Ackermann’s Movie Pick

I asked museum director Marion Ackermann what had been the biggest development in the art world in the last hundred years. She came up with an interesting answer: “Film.” So, I was all the more intrigued to discover what she would choose as her FMOAT. Here, too, she surprised me: “Murnau.” OK, I said, but that’s a director and not a movie. “If you’re going to press me, then I’ll go for Murnau’s masterpiece: Nosferatu.” Good choice! Also known as Nosferatu: A Symphony of Horror. What a title!!
