DESCRIPTION

Concept

Side by Side Gallery Akim Monet GmbH opened its doors in the Fall of 2011 on Berlin’s famed Postdamer Strasse.  Focusing on thematically curated exhibitions that juxtapose modern and contemporary art, the gallery is located within the former Tagesspiegel complex.
When curating his exhibitions, Akim Monet relies on his deep knowledge and subtle understanding of the history of 19th & 20th century art in order to explore and re-contextualize historically prevalent themes through modern and contemporary works of art.
By exposing thematic correlations, Side by Side Gallery Akim Monet moves beyond a singular chronological presentation in order to reveal converging and lasting influences.
Akim Monet draws upon his extensive international network within the art world to show carefully selected works from distinguished private collections, artist’s estates and renowned galleries, as well as pieces coming directly from noteworthy contemporary artists worldwide.  When appropriate, and with the collaboration of experts, he adds very pointedly chosen antiquities.
Side by Side Gallery Akim Monet acknowledges the site’s historic 19th century architecture and remains true to the Tagesspiegel’s motto ‘Rerum cognoscere causas’ (To know the cause of things). 
The gallery holds three to five annual-seasonal exhibitions.
