The curator Rebeccah Blum was allegedly the victim of Saul Fletcher, a British photo artist living in Berlin.
I remember the day I met Rebeccah for the first time. We had arranged to have lunch in Café Einstein. It was a warm get-together with humorous amazement at how much we had in common.
At first we noticed that we were both wearing jeans, mid-high boots, blouses and similar jackets, we pulled out the identical wallets and had already found that we were the same age, that we both had a daughter of the same age and the same German -American roots. We were amazed and laughed and felt connected.
I had closed my gallery, wanted to set up a drawing center and was looking for a partner. A mutual contact led me to Rebeccah. Nothing came of the drawing, but it did Satellite Berlin, a non-profit platform with a focus on the connection between art and science, into which we put our heart and soul.
Rebeccah was incredibly good at her job as an editor, publicist, coach, networker, and art and culture mediator. She was professional, precise and eloquent in the English and German languages. She had a great passion for text, no matter whether poetry or marketing texts: she created content for a wide variety of customers, whether artists, museum curators or large car manufacturers and other companies.
A sincere listener
However, the focus was on art and its main concern was always the well-being of the artists, many of whom they cared for with great commitment, amiability, responsibility and without an end in themselves. Rebeccah wanted to stimulate the general dialogue between art and culture in a meaningful way, and to develop new content in collaboration with other areas. She was a sincere listener, diplomatic, responsible and reliable, always 100% there.
Rebbecah was a wonderful mother. She loved working with children, we often talked about educational projects and tried to integrate programs for young people into our program. We talked a lot about the different cultures of the USA and Germany, what we loved and what we missed.
I extend my condolences to her daughter, her family in the United States and her close circle of friends in Germany. This event, this murder, to call it by name, is inexcusable. Saul Fletcher will carry this with him as a person, soul, artist.
It’s not about who is who or friend of who’s celebrity. It is about honoring a person who has been torn from his life, Rebeccah Blum, as the wonderful person she was, with a loving and sincere reminder.
The art consultant
Rebbecah was born in Berkeley, California, grew up in Philadelphia and came to Düsseldorf in her early twenties and then to Berlin. From 2007 to 2012, Rebeccah Blum headed the Scheibler Mitte gallery.
In 2012 she founded her company Blum Fine Art Management, and devoted herself extensively to supporting artists, galleries and collectors in the form of project management, administration and advice. From 2014-2017 she founded and leads Satellite Berlin – art in collaboration with me and then founded her company the Wordsmith.
