Fame's Boys and Girls, who never die
And are too seldom born —

Emily Dickinson

On July 6, 2007, Harald Fricke died of cancer at the age of 44. In addition to being an art critic and arts editor for the Berlin-based taz newspaper, in recent years he continually worked as an editor and author for db artmag. His articles and activities had a strong impact on the magazine. For us, however, he was first and foremost a friend. We will never forget the time we spent with him.
