KÖNIG GALERIE was founded by Johann König in 2002, and currently represents 30 international, emerging and established artists, mostly belonging to a younger generation. The program’s focus is on interdisciplinary, concept-oriented and space-based approaches in a variety of media including sculpture, video, sound, painting, printmaking, photography and performance. Since 2006, the gallery is located in a former industrial building on Dessauerstraße, near the Martin-Gropius-Bau and the New National Gallery, after moving from its original location at the Rosa-Luxemburg-Platz across from the Volksbühne. In May 2015, KÖNIG GALERIE took up a second location at St. Agnes, a monumental former church built in the 1960s in the Brutalist style, which serves as a Schaulager. After substantial renovations KÖNIG GALERIE will reopen its Dessauerstraße location for Berlin Gallery Weekend in May 2016. KÖNIG GALERIE participates in international art fairs such as Art Basel, Frieze Art Fair, London, FIAC, Paris and Art Basel Miami Beach. The gallery has successfully placed works in a variety of private and public collections, including the Museum of Modern Art in New York and the Guggenheim Foundation. The artists represented have solo exhibitions with institutions worldwide, and regularly partake in prestigious group exhibitions, such as Documenta and the biennials in Venice, Berlin, New York and others. They have been awarded many important prizes, commissions and outdoor projects.

Experience art in the virtual space of KÖNIG GALERIE!

"Surprisingly This Rather Works" by artist Manuel Rossner is a spatial intervention at ST. AGNES / KÖNIG GALERIE and at the same time a virtual extension of its exterior. The entire gallery is transformed into a gaming environment inspired by the 1990s game show "American Gladiators" and so-called gyms that are used for cutting-edge research in artificial intelligence by companies such as OpenAI in San Francisco.

The visitor turns into an avatar and interacts with objects that are part of a parcours. These objects broaden the perspective on what painting and sculpture can be in the digital realm. “Surprisingly This Rather Works” curated by Anika Meier and Johann König can be experienced via the app KÖNIG GALERIE: https://apps.apple.com/de/app/k%C3%B6nig-galerie/id1505554478?l=en
(Android version will follow soon).

Tomorrow opens our second exhibition at KÖNIG TOKIO: “Let the Engine Run” by Rinus Van de Velde is his first solo show in Japan. Pass by MCM Ginza Haus I between 6-8pm. ————————————————————————-
Rinus Van de Velde’s exhibition in Japan presents his new, small-format colour-pencil drawings.For many artists, painting is a means of self-exploration. Portraying aspects of themselves, they adopt telling roles and fictional identities within the scenes they depict, presenting their own alter egos. The same is true of Van de Velde, whose works present elements of himself in various roles and contexts. Citing a familiar grand motif, he’ll deflate and contradict it with a small format and laconic title; evoking great artists, he’ll integrate them or their ideas and works into his images; freezing his various scenes in time, he creates images like stills from a film.

Installation shots from the show “Elmgreen & Dragset: Sculptures“ by @elmgreenanddragsetstudio. The show marks the Scandinavian duo’s first major museum presentation in the U.S. Michael Elmgreen and Ingar Dragset have worked together as Elmgreen & Dragset since the mid-1990s.
—————————————-
In their sculptures, installations, and performances, they re-interpret familiar designs and spatial structures that surround us in our everyday lives with criticality and subversive wit. From their permanent, site-specific installation of a forever-closed Prada boutique in the West Texas desert to their contributions to the Danish and Nordic Pavilions at the Venice Biennale in 2009, to their conception of a faux art fair in Beijing in 2016 or their giant upright swimming pool Van Gogh’s Ear at Rockefeller Plaza the same year, Elmgreen & Dragset have consistently devised new possibilities in the way art is presented and perceived, and how we use and organize public space.

At the Nasher Sculpture Center, the exhibition focuses on Elmgreen & Dragset’s sculptural production, presenting together for the first time a large selection of sculptures that illustrate the artists’ use of multiple aesthetics and working methods, and show entry points from Minimalism, conceptual strategies, and the figurative sculpture tradition. The artists’ diverse approaches to making often incorporate performative and narrative elements on subjects that encompass the personal, the social, and political, such as youth and aging, gay rights, and the privatization of public space. Organized by Nasher Associate Curator, Dr. Leigh Arnold, the exhibition provides a long overdue look at the work of two of contemporary art’s most dynamic and multifaceted artists.

This winter the City of Miami Beach Art in Public Places Program will install Bent Pool (2019) by @elmgreenanddragsetstudio, the final in a series of six permanent, site-specific works of public art at the Miami Beach Convention Center (MBCC) announced earlier this year.
————————————-
Located in front of the Convention Center, Elmgreen & Dragset’s 20-foot-high sculpture, an upright arching swimming pool, will welcome visitors to the recently renovated and expanded site. Installed in the brand-new park at the MBCC, directly opposite the center’s west entrance, the sculpture will be unveiled during Art Basel Miami Beach in December 2019. The six artworks selected for the Art in Public Places program for the new Miami Beach Convention Center collectively represent the largest public art project of its kind installed on a single site in United States history.

Bent Pool is shaped like an inverted “U” and stands upright on a two-tier plinth. The pool seems to have somehow been lifted out of the ground and stretched into a curved form. With a turquoise blue interior, one of Elmgreen & Dragset’s signature colors, and a matte white exterior, the work both stands out against the greenery of the park at the Miami Beach Convention Center and creates a synoptic connection to the park as a leisure area. The work draws on the Minimalist reductive tradition and use of geometric forms, as much as it does on Pop-art and Conceptualism’s use of ready-made objects and imagery. Yet, on closer inspection one will discover that this is not an altered ready-made, but a carefully crafted object. Identified by details such as its ladder, its diving board and pool lamps, the abstracted object can easily be recognized as a swimming pool even though its bowed shape prevents it from carrying water.

Opening times: Tue - Sun 11am - 6pm

“Without the fall of the Berlin Wall, I would never have become an artist.” To mark the thirtieth anniversary of the fall of the Wall, the artist Norbert Bisky will revisit the final days of the East Germany, the ensuing chaos and his own personal experiences in two simultaneous exhibitions in Berlin and Potsdam starting in November 2019.

Situated symbolically in the direct vicinity of Potsdam’s ‘Bridge of Spies’ in former East Germany, Villa Schöningen was not just of key historical significance for the necessary exchanges between the opposing sides; it was deliberately selected as the venue of choice for RANT. On show is a selection of Norbert Bisky’s newer graphic works and paintings that deal explicitly with the separation of the two Germanies. To coincide with the opening of the art show, Villa Schöningen Museum will celebrate its tenth anniversary.
St. Matthäus Kirche (St. Matthew’s Church) at the Berliner Kulturform was also located close to the Wall, albeit on the other side, and will provide the backdrop for the simultaneous POMPA exhibition. The title of the show refe­rences the ancient Roman tradition of segregating religious processions with gods and ancestral images according to class, profession and interests, and, in turn, a society divided by economics, media and politics.

———————————————————————
Where the focus is on the natural world, nature is quite obviously attached to artistic practice and consequently has connotations of being culturally permeated. Two sparsely hung, detailed plant sketches — Distel and Brennnessel (2019) — initially seem call to mind the aesthetics of early modern nature observation and ideals of the beauty of nature. But their substrate emphasises their artificiality: the industrially-produced sandpaper on which they were rendered resisted the movements of the stylus, turning the friction between the materials into an expression of the special capabilities of these plant species, which sting when touched. The strokes of the drawings capture a multi-faceted moment of conflict: their endangered materiality is exposed to obliteration and refers not only to the limits of human appropriation of nature but also to its potentially destructive effects.

Their forms were then cast in bronze and sandblasted. The resulting hybrid objects constantly oscillate between technical and animal production, their material qualities become interchangeable.——————————————————————

Our Story

KÖNIG GALERIE was founded in Berlin by Johann König in 2002, and currently represents 38 international emerging and established artists, mostly belonging to a younger generation. The program’s focus is on interdisciplinary, concept-oriented and space-based approaches in a variety of media including sculpture, video, sound, painting, printmaking, photography and performance. From 2006, the gallery was located in a former industrial building on Dessauerstraße after moving from its original location at the Rosa-Luxemburg-Platz across from the Volksbühne. In May 2015, KÖNIG GALERIE took up St. Agnes, a monumental former church built in the 1960s in the Brutalist style, where large-scale exhibitions take place in two different spaces, the former chapel and nave. The church was built by Werner Düttmann, an architect and Berlins director of urban development from 1960 to 1966. The renovations were realized by renowned architect Arno Brandlhuber. Since October 2017 KÖNIG GALERIE runs KÖNIG London. A space for individual and site specific artist presentations. KÖNIG GALERIE participates in international art fairs such as Art Basel, Frieze Art Fair, London, FIAC, Paris and Art Basel Miami Beach. The gallery has successfully placed works in a variety of private and public collections, including the Museum of Modern Art in New York and the Guggenheim Foundation. The artists represented have solo exhibitions with institutions worldwide, and regularly partake in prestigious group exhibitions, such as Documenta and the biennials in Venice, Berlin, New York and others. They have been awarded many important prizes, commissions and outdoor projects.
