Carl Friedrich Schröer has a very special view of the city's culture. In 2020, the renowned art critic curated a multimedia retrospective of the work of Anatol Herzfeld at the Weltkunstzimmer. At that time, the gallery on a former factory site in Düsseldorf-Flingern also featured videos of Joseph Beuys crossing the Rhine. Beuys student and policeman Anatol had prepared the dugout canoe for the river crossing.

As a native of Düsseldorf, Schröer observes events very closely and with profound knowledge in equal measure. Among other things, he shares his impressions and knowledge in his blog "" with exciting texts and films.

In conversation with Mike Litt, in the spring of the Joseph Beuys Year, he tells us about the significance of the extraordinary universal artist and actionist, about his companion Anatol, and how one can still discover art in Düsseldorf that may be highly valued in the future. And we learn how Carl Friedrich Schröer came to live in the extraordinary Eiskellerberg House in the immediate vicinity of the Art Academy, where he works today and continues to find inspiration.
