Blinky Palermo’s (1943–1977) fame undoubtedly rests on his artistically extraordinary, auratic works and simultaneously feeds on the myth of his personality. As a non-conformist, a romantic individualist, he was a kind of James Dean of the German art world, who took an uncompromising approach both to his art and his life. As only few of his contempor-aries, in the 1960s and 1970s he sounded out the conditions and possibilities of creative production in a variety of ways. However, Palermo’s career and success are barely imaginable without the influence of gallery owners such as Heiner Friedrich and Erhard Klein. The publication sediment uses previously unpublished archive material to illustrate both Palermo’s extraordinary cooperation with these legendary gallery owners and the art-historical significance of his fabric pictures, wall paintings and metal pictures, which have remained constantly topical to this very day.
