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.
