Let us introduce ourselves

Amely Deiss

Director of Kunstpalais and Municipal Art Collection
What is the best part of working on an exhibition?
Everything, actually. However, I especially like the construction period – when you are standing with the artist and the team in the exhibition rooms, giving the finishing touches and what you have planned for months finally takes form. Add a pinch of excitement and spontaneous challenges that have to be mastered – the final spurt towards the finishing line before the exhibition opening is simply fantastic!
When do you know that you absolutely want an artist for Kunstpalais?
When I’m in love! Often it catches me by surprise – in an exhibition or a fair, by looking through a paper or the internet.
Never without…?
Jewelry! Necklace, rings, bracelets – the bigger the better.
