The Gallery Assistant Who Prefers Berlin to Westchester

“I only wear black and dark blue.”

Nick Schulte, Gallery Assistant

What gallery do you work for?
Galerie Thomas Schulte in Berlin — it’s my father’s gallery. I never really wanted to go down that nepotistic path of taking over the gallery — which I still don’t think I want to do. But for now, I really enjoy working there and traveling to places like New York.

You don’t have a German accent.
My mother’s from here, and my father’s German. They met in New York when my dad was working at the MoMA. At the time, my mother couldn’t stand New York, and they were debating whether to move up to Westchester, where her parents lived, or get out of the city and move to Berlin. I’m happy they didn’t choose Westchester!
