Gallery Program and History
The Magnus Muller Gallery focuses on Conceptual Art and an interdisciplinary-based exploration of various mediums. The gallery is
mainly interested in debuting the work of young and emerging Berlin based artists from different nationalities, as well as in presenting
internationally renowned artists to the Berlin audience.
The Magnus Muller Gallery concentrates on the city of Berlin as a powerplant and point of origin of internationally preceded discussions, dealing with phenomena of the present. In the gallerist's opinion, a gallery must work as a factory, creating a public place beyond the Academies of Arts, the museums and private collections. This gallery space, in which traditional functions are no longer valid, is currently a dynamic place for critical reviews and analysis.
The Magnus Muller Gallery also engages with guest curators to orchestrate group exhibitions, consisting of a mix between the gallery's permanent artists and invited emerging artists. Furthermore, performances and interventions of the artists in the exhibition space are an integral part of the gallery, which acts in itself as a dynamic hub and as a "cultural agent" of Berlin.
A common interest for space issues and space perception unifies most of the works of the represented artists. Many works refer to the gallery's architecture and are specifically created for this context.
