Cultural engagements and events by Minkner & Partner - Mallorca real estate

Minkner & Partner offer more than just the sale of real estate on Mallorca, it also offers the social and cultural commitment of the company and events

The "Minkner & Partner" brand stands for competency in the handling and completion of the sale of top class properties on Mallorca to a discerning international audience. The company’s employees constantly strive to find the right property for their clients, whether it be a holiday home or a permanent residence, a home for a few weeks of the year or for many years to come. Minkner & Partner sees its commitment to both the customer and the company. Minkner & Partner provides its customers not only with a beautiful property, but the team also wants to help its customers find a new quality of life on Mallorca. Quality of life is our corporate philosophy and this not just a case of a beautiful home and good food it also includes getting involved in the cultural and social life of the host country.

Integration occurs by participating in cultural events

Culture can serve as a bridge between people of different nationalities. However it is also true that several barriers need to be overcome in order to participate in cultural activities. Foremost is the language. Even if you can do quite well in daily life with little knowledge of Spanish, in order to form closer friendships, go to the theatre or even a sophisticated cabaret without a deeper knowledge of the language of the host country is difficult. Therefore, it is important to make the most of the diverse opportunities available to learn the language of the host country.

Since the start of their activities on Mallorca Edith and Lutz Minkner have done their utmost to build bridges between their international customers and hosts and on numerous occasions have organized activities whereby Spaniards and customers get to know one another and in some cases have established friendships. The mutual learning process allows that each learns about the others traditions, customs and mindset. In order to enable a quick immersion into the culture of the host country Edith and Lutz Minkner have organized cultural events or supported the cultural activities of other parties.

visual art in the Minkner Art Gallery

In 1997 Edith and Lutz Minkner founded the "Galeria de Arte Minkner" as a fixed integral part of the overall company. Reputable gallery work is for Minkners not only a passion, but relies on decades of experience. From the seventies to the mid-eighties and in addition to his law office, Lutz Minkner also ran the renowned Pheasant Street Gallery, where he introduced and promoted, among others, the ‘young savages’. Among the s artists represented at that time are such well-known names as Fred Thieler, Walter Stöhrer, Salome und Elvira Bach. In 1997 the Minkners took over the large glass pavilion in Santa Ponsa Avenida Rey Jaime I, which provided the perfect ambience to tie in with the art gallery in Germany. In the past 20 years over 200 solo exhibitions and numerous group exhibitions have taken place here and in other areas. The well-attended exhibition openings provide, in addition to participation in an artistic event, an opportunity to meet new people, exchange experiences and to join in lively discussions.

The Minkner Art Gallery does not limit itself to one kind of art but rather represents an array of artistic work. With this in mind the Minkners have opened up their gallery to include work from those artists who represent the Mediterranean lifestyle though subjects and colour, and also to those whose work represent and characterize periods of time. To follow are just some of the artists who have exhibited in the Minkner Gallery: Dagmar Adamski , Diego Arango Arango, Elvira Bach, Manel Casa Ella, Jörg Döring, Antonio Falco, Wilhelm Fikisz, Elena Gatti, Herman, Herbert Hundrich, Iti Janz, John , Alfred Lichter, Gabriele Lockstädt, Heinz Morzoeck, David Templeton, Peter Thoms, Dimitri Vojnow, Jürgen Wölke and David Zisman.

In additon the gallery rooms are also used for evening events such as chamber music, classical music, Jazz and Blues as well as readings and cabaret evenings.

A passion for music

Music is another passion of Edith and Lutz Minkner. For many years they were sponsors of the international Music Festival on Mallorca. The Minkners also helped to bring the Dresden Philharmonic Orchestra to Mallorca to give a concert and during the last few years they have been involved in "Friends of the Balearic Symphony Orchestra" of which Lutz Minkner is the President. During the economic crisis the city of Palma was named as “European capital of culture” but at the same time the musicians feared for their jobs and the possible dissolution of the orchestra was discussed. At this point the “the circle of friends” led by the Austrian Josef Eggers who is a patron of all things cultural and a friend of the Minkners , along with other interested music lovers, initiated a plan to save the orchestra and to put it in a solid financial position. In Spring of 2016, the Balearic Symphony Orchestra performed in the Vienna Music Hall accompanied by Juan Diego Florez to great acclaim, an event that was funded largely by the friends of the Symphony Orchestra.

Edith and Lutz Minkner have also taken up the cause of promoting young musicians. Early on they supported the young Mallorcan "wonder violinist" Francisco Garcia Fullana and were able t oconvince a Swiss cultural foundation to take an interest in him, which then took over the cost of training at the Conservatory in Madrid and in the United States. Francisco, who now lives in New York, but always comes to concerts on Mallorca and has become an internationally sought-after soloist.

Integration through participation in social activities

Minkner & Partner is also involved in a variety of ways aiding those who have troubles in their lives particularly for abused or sick children. There are many individual stories that are not shown in detail here for obvious reasons. A nonprofit organisation that Minkner & Partner have supported for many years should be named here because of their noteworthy work: ASPANOB - a self-help organisation for parents of children with cancer. Minkner & Partner like to help where possible. On his 60th birthday instead of receiving gifts from his guests Lutz Minkner made a considerable donation to ASPANOB. Each year a charity golf tournament \ "Golf con Corazon - Golfing with Heart " takes place on Mallorca, and increasingly large sums of money are raised for ASPANOB - Minkner & Partner is a sponsor of this event.

Edith and Lutz Minkner are always keen to draw attention of third parties to social problems and encoraging them to tackle these problems.
