We congratulate the ZADIK (Zentralarchiv für deutsche und internationale Kunstmarktforschung e.V. – Central Archive for German and International Art Market Research) and its Director – and TIAMSA member – Prof. Dr. Günter Herzog, for succeeding in anchoring this important institution for art market research at the University of Cologne where it will become an independent institute.
This decisive step secures the future of the ZADIK which, for many years, had to face an uncertain existence.
Founded in 1992 by the German Association of Art Galleries and Art Dealers (Bundesverband Deutscher Galerien und Kunsthändler – www.bvdg.de), the ZADIK has since made many pioneering contributions to the study of the art market.
