The gallery program focuses on the dialogue between young artists and the rediscovery of art-historical positions. The recontextualization of reality is a characteristic feature of the program. New Realism, Conceptual Art, Performance, and Pop Art are crucial traits of the artistic strategies and further pursued by our young artists in a meta-modern discourse. The new collaborations with Ester Kläs (DE 1981), Inge Mahn (DE 1943), Ayan Farah (UAE 1978) and Linda Matalon (US 1958) continue this. The gallery program has been acknowledged by numerous international institutional solo exhibitions by the gallery’s artists and purchases for museum collections. Recent highlights have been the invitation of our artists Vlassis Caniaris and Dani Gal for documenta 2017, Esther Kläs´ solo exhibition at Proyecto AMIL and her participation at "Proof of Life" (2017-18), the recent acquisition of works by Linda Matalon by the Brooklyn Museum NY, Ayan Farah´s up-coming exhibition participation at Whitechapel Gallery in june 2018, the re-positioning of Barbara Kasten (US 1936) in international museum collections such as the Centre Pompidou, Tate London or Generali Foundation and exhibitions such as at Sprengel Museum Hannover (2018), Tate Modern London (2018) or Sharjah Biennale (2019).
