Gallery owner and Lee Ufan, 2006
||Up to five exhibitions per year are shown in the gallery. Additionally, a close cooperation with national and international museums, art festivals, and other institutions forms an essential part of the gallery work, which enables represented artists to take part in various exhibitions worldwide.
The support of upcoming young artists is as important as the continuous work with already established artists, for instance, Richard Serra, Gotthard Graubner, Lee Ufan or François Morellet. Young artistic positions are not considered in reference to quick trends, but rather in terms of a long-term collaboration as well as an intense examination and following-up of their artistic development. Artists discovered by the gallery are photographers such as Evelyn Hofer, Lucinda Devlin or Aino Kannisto, painters as for example Sybille Berger or Alfredo Álvarez Plágaro and sculptors like Carla Guagliardi.
Sustainability and care are also an important basis for the relationship with private customers, museums and companies. Consulting and building-up of private as well as company collections has always been part of the gallery work.
The gallery was founded in 1969 by Alexander von Berswordt-Wallrabe, especially as a gallery for Neue Konkrete Kunst . Since then the programmatic emphasis of the gallery lies on the presentation and support of international contemporary art. The programme has continuously extended and opened up for new artistic positions.
Apart from Art Basel, the gallery regularly participates at Paris Photo. A wide range of books and catalogues published by the gallery is meant to ground this engagement.
