Luis Ituarte, the artist who owns the 'Tunnel Gallery' in Tijuana, suggested to me to visit Petra Hewel-Herrmann und Jens Herrman (above) while in Cologne, and I am glad I did because they themselves ran a gallery in Tijuana until two years ago, when they decided to move to Germany and open the Kunstraum H&H here. Since I am interested in anything 'Mexican border' (and especially the art scene in Tiuana) for my La Frontera project, it was great to hear their story and to see their new space in the heart of old Cologne. The painting is by German artist Hagen Rehborn, his current show at the gallery runs until October 22, 2009.
