An art auction will now help the Operndorf Afrika to grow.
On 8 March 2012, AUKTION 3000 will take place at Hamburger Bahnhof Berlin, with Peter Raue acting as host and auctioneer.
Additional well-known personalities from the art world, such as Klaus Biesenbach (Mo MA, New York) and Chris Dercon (Director Tate Modern, London) support the project Operndorf Afrika and the auction.
The auction had attracted very substantial bids and, in our experience, had it not been for Mr Becker’s intervention, last minute bids would have significantly increased the return for his creditors.
As officers of the court we look to obtain the best possible return for creditors, so at a Court hearing on 27 June 2018 we agreed to the temporary adjournment of the auction so that Mr Becker’s claims could be dealt with before the Court.
As a result, on 19 November 2018 and following Mr Becker’s formal withdrawal of his claims, the Court ordered that the Trustees be allowed to proceed to a sale.
The Court also ordered that Mr Becker be liable for the Trustees’ costs incurred in dealing with the dispute.
