How to Not F*ck Up Your Art-World Happiness

By Christoph Noe
After living and working in the art world for the past 15 years, Christoph Noe brought pen to paper to gather some thoughts on how to navigate the culture industry. Following multiple conversations and with the encouragement of his art-world crew, Noe hopes that these guidelines can function as a possible motivator for those in the industry.

“It first developed foremost as a guide for myself as I continuously challenge the mission that I am on in the art world, asking myself why I am still doing what I am doing,” he reports. “Or sometimes, more dramatically, ‘If art is used in therapy, why do we almost need therapy when working in the art industry?’”

Christoph Noe founded the Ministry of Art in 2005 with a focus on Chinese artists from the post-1970s and 1980s generation. In 2013 he cofounded Larry’s List, a premier resource for art collectors.
