The Munich gentlemen have now firmly noted Sonja Lechner's Gentlemen ART Lunch in their diaries.

Because the Munich art expert combines networking and art enjoyment here.

This time she invited to the antique collections.

Sonja Lechner knows how to bring people together.

She's been doing this for years at her Ladies Art Lunch, and now she's doing it again at the Gentlemen Art Lunch - the male counterpart, so to speak.

Whether she invites 100 women or 100 men, the goal is always the same: They should get to know each other and stay in touch throughout the day.

Because that's the Sonja Lechner phenomenon: She succeeds in networking people who are guaranteed to inspire each other - so that it doesn't just end with exchanging business cards, but actually call and meet each other after the event.

Networks that make a difference worldwide

"Why I invited you is based on the simple fact that I believe in the power of networks - I believe that people who make a decisive difference, that designers and doers, who change the world a bit in their area, who put personal responsibility ahead of a claim on the state and society, who can increase their impact by coming together,” says the inviter herself in her speech.

The gentlemen nod knowingly.

From Michael Amberger (Allguth petrol stations) to Moritz Freiherr von Crailsheim (art collector), everyone here knows: together we are stronger.

And can make a difference worldwide.

Sometimes just by clicking on "Send" in your own e-mail program.

That's what Sonja Lechner felt when, in response to a call for help from a Ukrainian artist friend of hers, she sent a request for support into the (virtual) world.

Medical supplies were needed in Kyiv;

Lechner had a list of the missing medical devices sent to her and sent it to everyone in her circle of acquaintances who was in any way active in the medical field or had contacts in the industry.

One

email - and a response that overwhelmed the dedicated networker.

And so Lechner appealed to the visibly impressed gentlemen to also use their own contacts more often for humanitarian purposes beyond the ordinary business.

"Let's no longer see life as just a gift, but also as a challenge, a challenge to each and every one of us to make our individual contribution in association with others!" Just like her dad once taught her.

"The best father of all - mine - wrote me the sentence by Erich Kästner in my poetry album in the first grade, which summarizes all this: 'There is nothing good unless you do it!' - let's tackle it!"

There is nothing good, unless you do it!

Whoever listens to the conversations at the tables set up in the Munich Collections of Antiquities notices how much she captured the spirit of the times with this sentence.

Surrounded by showcases with precious ancient vases, the invited gentlemen talk about what is happening in the Ukraine - and in all war zones of the world.

Can art, can culture do something about it?

Michael Amberger firmly believes in the power that lies in culture.

As reported, he and his equally culture-crazy brother Christian, full-time owner of the mineral oil company Allguth, in Aubing, in the triangle between the train stations Leienfelsstraße and Langwied, are currently realizing their dream: the Bergson cultural center is to be built on the 20,000 square meter site.

A multicultural center

where you can spend almost the whole day - thanks to the restaurant, gallery, concert hall, beer garden, live club, day bar and other flexible spaces.

The brothers know: Munich lacks trendy pubs where young artists in particular can meet - and make contact with gallery owners, established artists, potential patrons.

"We want to be such a meeting place," says Michael Amberger.

Everyone who attended the Gentlemen's Art Lunch this afternoon felt how important networks are.

From Bavaria's Minister of Justice Georg Eisenreich to Fritz Esterer (CEO WTS).

When established gentlemen exchange business cards like boys used to exchange Panini cards, then it must be Sonja Lechner's Art Lunch.
