A Brief History of the AEAA
The Association Européenne des Agents Artistiques (AEAA) was founded in December 1947 by a group of artist managers, concert agents and impresarios from six European countries. Originally called “Association Européene des Directeurs de Bureaux de Concerts et Spectacles” it was co-founded in Paris by a group of colleagues and friends: Charles Kiesgen, Maurice Dandelot, Marcel de Valmalete in France, Harold Holt of Great Britain, Johan Beek and Dr. de Koos from Holland, Clara Camus and Ada Finzi from Italy, Rudolf Goette and Dr. Winderstein from Germany and Imre Kun in Hungary. They were quickly joined by other European agents whose aims were to maintain exchanges and positive relations all while defending a profession where artists were too often in precarious situations. A vision of Europe ahead of its time.
Today with close to 90 members in 16 countries our association continues to grow. Its professionalism, enthusiasm and friendly atmosphere remains intact and true to the spirit of its founding fathers.
The first Président was Harold Holt, followed by Wilfrid van Wyck, Helmer Enwall, Maurice Dandelot, Michael Reiner, Gaston Ariën, Hans Schlote, Herbert Droz, Klaus Menzel, Marie-Anne de Valmalete, Patrizia Garassi, Hans Ulrich Schmid, Pieter G. Alferink, Patrick Garvey, Herve Corre de Valmalete, Benedikt Weingartner and Andrea Hampl.
