DESCRIPTION

Andersen’s Contemporary originally began as a project space in Linienstrasse in Berlin called
Andersen’s Wohnung. Andersen’s Wohnung existed i 1996-1999 as an alternative art space run by Danish artist Claus Andersen and German artists Thilo Heinzmann and Anselm Reyle.

Having made strong connections with many rising German artists, Claus Andersen moved back to his native Copenhagen, and opened a new gallery here in April 2005: Andersen’s Contemporary. Andersen’s Contemporary is thus based on Claus Andersen’s German connections and started out with artists he worked with in Berlin, i.e. Henrik Olesen, Anselm Reyle, Olafur Eliasson or Tomas Saraceno.

Today, however, the gallery represent a variety of emerging and established artists from throughout
the world. A common feature for these artists is works and artistic practices that are conceptually
rigorous and that participate in a vital dialogue between art and broader socio-cultural currents in contemporary society.
