100 days 100 galleries; Day 54: König Galerie, Berlin Germany

KÖNIG GALERIE was founded in Berlin by Johann König in 2002, and currently represents 39 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.

Carlos Fentanes: I saw your last post. Do you actually have a chapel in your gallery? The space looks awesome. I want to visit it!

The gallery didn’t answer.

I thought I deserved an answer with this one. Why don’t you want to talk about your gallery? I found Germans very difficult to engage in a conversation. What they’re passionate about? How can I get an answer from them? Now that it seems to me that I can get a positive answer to my questions I get to this ans I don’t know how to fix this. I check the stats in my website and I realize that there’s a good proportion of visitors from Germany so I thought it was a good idea to start a conversation with German galleries but it has been hard. Again, why? I think art galleries, commercial art galleries in Germany, maybe are more like museums or libraries; yes the people can buy artworks there but they can also walk around and just enjoy the walk, a concept a little different that what we can see in North America.
