Artists for Cap Anamur
“Artists for Cap Anamur” is a joint project of the Art of Buna Gallery and Cap Anamur / Deutsche Not-Ärzte e.V.
Artists donate their works of art to our collection “Artists for Cap Anamur” which are then sold in fundraising exhibitions or in auctions. The money earned from the sale of the works goes 100% into the project work of Cap Anamur. There are friendly connections between Cap Anamur and the Art of Buna Gallery which have grown over a period of many years. It is important to us and to the artists involved that we keep in touch regularly. It is hoped that the humanitarian work carried out will provide a source of inspiration to the artists, and the other way round too.
Currently, the collection comprises around 120 works by 27 different artists and it is growing steadily. It is conceivable that there will be group exhibitions in various different constellations, on a range of themes – contemporary painting, woodcuts and etching, photography, African art, etc. We are pleased to be able to complement our exhibitions with a framework programme providing information on the aid organisation Cap Anamur. We provide information material or perhaps organise a talk about the work of the association. The complete collection is available for sale in our online shop.
Cap Anamur / German Emergency Doctors
The not-for-profit association “Cap Anamur / Deutsche Not-Ärzte e.V”, which is based in Cologne-Ehrenfeld, was set up in 1979 by Christel und Rupert Neudeck with a group of their friends, one of whom was Heinrich Böll. Since this time, the association has been carrying out humanitarian aid in various locations, including some areas where media interest has long since ebbed away. The focus of their work is the provision of medical help and access to education. Cap Anamur aligns its activities with the principles of sustainability. Structures are created in war-torn and crisis areas which will bring about a permanent improvement in the lives of people who have found themselves in a situation of need – with the renovation and development of hospitals and schools, the provision of initial and further training for the indigenous workers, as well as the provision of building materials, aid supplies and medication. In accordance with their principles, the faster Cap Anamur can hand over a project to the local employees, the better. This then frees up capacity for other projects.
