Falkenstern Fine Art 1986 
Gallery opening of Falkenstern Fine Art, 584-588 Broadway, Soho, New York.
Opened by Armin Sprotte, with contemporary art from Europe, China and the USA.
The eighties were a special time in New York, which were still influenced
by Ilena Sonnabend and Leo Castelli. 
The Gallery programme was centred around the work and later the estate of
Siegward Sprotte in cooperation with the Sprotte Foundation, Potsdam. 
 
The reputation of Falkenstern Fine Art was consolidated through exhibitions with museums
such as the Pushkin Museum 1989, Gulbenkian Museum 1993, Shanghai Art Museum in 1996,
The Castle Kappenberg 2003, Wuhan Art Museum 2011, The County Museum of Schleswig Holstein
and the Potsdam Museum 2013. 
At the same time, several collaborations with various galleries developed.
 
2006 Remodeling Atelier Sprotte, Kampen as well as the name change from
Atelier Sprotte to Falkenstern Fine Art & Atelier Sprotte, laid the foundation
for the 21st century gallery based in Kampen.
