A six-volume celebration of the Berlin restaurant at the center of the city’s art culture. The Paris Bar on Kantstrasse in Berlin’s Charlottenburg is one of Germany’s most famous meeting places for artists. Bustling every night of the week with fascinating guests from every walk of life, the restaurant is particularly beloved by painters, actors, writers, collectors and gallerists, its walls covered by a mélange of artworks by John Baldessari, Maria Lassnig, Georg Baselitz, Sarah Lucas and Martin Kippenberger—to name just a few. Now, the artist and owner of the Paris Bar, Michel Würthle (born 1943), has created the first behind-the-scenes look into this legendary institution, in the form of an intimate, sprawling visual journal—six volumes of hundreds of his drawings, photographs, collages, menus and handwritten texts in English, German and French. Paris Bar Press Confidential is at once a subjective history of the Paris Bar brimming with memories and a love letter to Berlin.
