Hans Hubert is a wonderful German man who has been annually visiting Zimbabwe and promoting Zimbabwean Contemporary Sculpture and artists. He is a collector who has been good friends with prominent writers, curators and supporters of art; such as Celia Winter Irving, Tom Blomefield and the like. I met him in the summer of 2009 when I returned home to do my Tanner Fellowship research on Zimbabwean sculpture.
When Hans found out about my research, he was more than happy to take me to a couple of sculpture centers and introduce me to some prominent artists who I would have never met on my own. Long after I returned to the USA, Hans read through my paper a few times. I was so honored that this established art collector would take the time to call me all the way from Germany to discuss my 40 page paper with me.
A few weeks ago, he emailed me and told me about Zimbabwean Sculpture exhibitions that he had been involved in within Germany.
Here is the link to some of the artwork that has recently been on exhibit.
