Opening "The Feminine Statement. Female Artists in the XXth Century"

We were delighted with the large attendance at yesterday's opening of our exhibition "The Feminine Statement. Female Artists in the XXth Century". The art historian Dr. Ingrid von der Dollen held an interesting eulogy about female artists in the XXth century and their fight for recognition. 

The exhibition presents artworks by Lotte Laserstein, Johanna Schütz-Wolff, Renée Sintenis and many other artists and will give you an idea of the creative potential of the Classic Modern Art’s paintresses and sculptresses and illustrate their independent contributions to the development of modern art through creativity, daring, and self-assertion.

Book Launch Bruno Taut

In the light of our current November Group exhibition, the German Werkbund Berlin presented the newly published book “Bruno Taut. Visionär und Weltbürger” at our gallery. Members of the revolutionary November Group did not only include painters, sculptors, composers and authors, but also architects such as Bruno Taut. All of them wanted to shape the young republic both artistically and socially. 

The authors of the book Jenny Schily, Edzard Reuter, Thomas Flierl, Uli Hellweg and Unda Hörner spoke about their connection to Bruno Taut and his work.

Opening of Our Exhibition “Radical. Visionary. Nonconformist. 100 Years November Group”

Yesterdays evening, accompanied by the great interest in our new exhibition, has brought us a lot of joy. We would like to thank all estate managers, collectors and visitors, who have contributed to this successful exhibition opening. We especially want to thank Dr. Tobias Hoffmann, Director of the Bröhan Museum, whose laudation has provided us with a comprehensive insight into the formation and spirit of the November Group that occurred 100 years ago.


Formed in 1918, the November Group is a child of the revolution. Thus she conveyed the democratic and liberal idea of combining art and the people, as well as being open for all contemporary stylistic directions.

Opening of the Exhibition "Dieter Finke. Sculpture and Painting"

We were delighted to open our new exhibition with works by Dieter Finke – the first showing of his art since his death in 2011. This event was a rare pleasure for us, our guests and espacially for his friends. Forceful sculptures and paintings full of intensity and a fondness for experimenting stand side by side. This gives special insights into Finke's comprehensive œuvre.  
We are grateful to Dr. Viola Stephan and Constantin Stephan, the estate managers, for their support. Since Dieter Finke was awarded with the Georg-Kolbe-Prize in 1967, it was a particular honour, that Dr. Julia Wallner, the director of the Georg Kolbe Museum, introduced the exhibition.

New Year’s Reception with Film Screening about Renée Sintenis

For over 30 years, the voice of the Berlin Bear was heard again for the first time on January 10, 2018. On the occasion of the finissage of our exhibition “Coat · Feather · Fin” and for welcoming the new gallery year we showed a long time forgotten 16mm documentary out of the archive from the former “Landes-Film-Dienst Berlin-Brandenburg” about the famous sculptress Renée Sintenis. Every year filmmakers are honoured with her bear-sculpture at the Berlinale Festival.
We thank Dr. Axel Roch, lecturer at the Art University Weißensee, for the screening of this historic film document which gives a vivid impression of the artistic work of Sintenis in image and sound.


Opening "Coat · Feather · Finn" on 29th September 2017

On friday, 29th September, we opened our exhibition "Coat · Feather · Finn“ which is devoted to the representation of animals in painting, graphic arts and sculpture. The art historian Dr. Miriam-Esther Owesle, managing director of the Guthmann Academy, introduced the exhibition with a marvellous eulogy. With her profound words and complex insights into the life of the artists, she highlighted the beauty and importance of the shown art. Therefore we thank her very much!

Artist Talk with Hanspeter Münch

We would like to thank the artist Hanspeter Münch for his spirited remarks and insights into his art. Through the use of colour, transparency and light, his paintings strikingly convey a special energy to the viewer. The internationally renowned artist, who lives in Karlsruhe, creates this energy by applying various delicate layers of colours. We are delighted to be able to exhibit two of his most recent works, which arose from his stay in India. The traditional Saris inspired him to create a series of paintings with atmospheric colour plays.

Opening "Summer Views"

During the Gallery Weekend, we introduced our new exhibition “SommerAnsichten” on the 29th of April, which contained paintings from artists such as Marie-Luise Heller, Hanspeter Münch, Ulrich Neujahr, Werner Scholz, Siegfired Sprotte and Werner Tübke. According to the motto “Colourfulness, Light and Lifestyle” we opened with a musical performance by the “Ensemble Abhörstation”, which reflected the most beautiful months of year that have long inspired artists due to its wealth of motives.

1. FC Union Meets Art – Paintings and Photos from Frank Rödel (Kopie)

According to the motto “Union Meets Art” we and the economic board of 1. FC Union e.V. invite you to a sales exhibition with works from the German artist Frank Rödel, in the Balletage of the Stadium “An der Alten Försterei” from the 17th March to the 14th May 2017.
Since the late 1980s, Frank Rödel annually explores virtually untouched Landscapes all around the world. These frequent expeditions inspire him to create impressive photos and works on paper. Viewing the blistering lava fields, archaise ice- and sand desserts and powerful ocean worlds become an extraordinary experience in the exhibition. Frank Rödel uses landscape art as a tool to express areas of his emotional world. In this way, works depicting incredibly high waves and bizzare Volcanoe landscapes in Hawaii reveal their breath-taking beauty but also their simultaneous unpredictable destructive power.
This lies in contrast to his City works, which trace back to his impressions of New York and Berlin. Through the use of colour, detail and technical complexity, his collages express the multiformity and colourfulness of these megacities.


Opening "From Yesterday to Today. 150 Years Verein der Berliner Künstlerinnen“

In this exhibition we are presenting works by nearly 20 paintresses and sculptresses – from the late 19th century up to the present time.

To our soirée we welcomed about 80 visitors in our gallery. It was a great pleasure for us to share our enthusiasm about the artist Herbert Behrens-Hangeler with others. 

The discussion and the documentary film “Fluchtburg Fredersdorf” by Ursula and Günter Feist, broadcasted in 1995 by the SFB, recalled the artist’s personality, life and work.
Our special thanks goes to the family of Behrens-Hangeler, his former students, the art historian Dr. Sibylle Badstübner-Gröger and the literary scholar Paul Werner Wagner – they all made the evening an outstanding and emotional experience.

Article in the art newspaper ZEITKUNST

We are very happy about the lovely article about our gallery and our current exhibition “Into the Open. Nude and Landscape” in the monthly newspaper ZEITKUNST.



Opening “Into the Open. Nude and Landscape”

While having summer temperatures, we invited to our spring exhibition’s opening into the open. The actor and author Bastienne Voss opened the evening with texts by Alfred Polgar. She was accompanied by “Hans die Geige” (‘Hans the Violin’).
The exhibition “Into the open” puts two of the most preferred themes of the Fine Art into an exciting dialogue, nude- and landscape paintings. With more than 60 pieces of work of 39 artists it is the most extensive exhibition of our gallery to date. The different techniques of painted human beings and nature portrait the parallel existence of different styles during the modern art.

Bastienne Voss reads Alfred Polgar.


Opening “Encountering Forces. Erwin Hahs between Abstraction and Representativeness”

Our current exhibition is dedicated to an artist who represents the concept of the gallery perfectly. During his artistic creations Erwin Hahs was forced to be resistant in thinking and acting against the two totalitarian systems. With more than 30 paintings from the estate of Erwin Hahs, the salon gallery presents the artist’s extensive and thematically diverse oeuvre. 
Since he taught as professor at the Burg Giebichenstein for a very long time, Hahs often is called the father of the Universitiy of Art and Design Halle. “Without him the castle would not have become what it is now”, Dr. Heinz Schönemann emphasized during his eulogy. He is the former director of the art collection Moritzburg and later the deputy director of the Prussian Palaces and Gardens Foundation Potsdam.

Salon evening “Purpurgedanken” - reading out of Erwin Hahs’s diaries

During yesterday’s salon evening we got to know how rich in events and conflicts an artist’s life could be. Since our current exhibition shows paintings of Erwin Hahs (1887 – 1970), Lutz Harder read parts of the painter’s and graphic artist’s diaries. The actor starts with the 1910s and goes on until the mid 1950s so that family and history of the past come to life. Jazz musician Rolf von Nordenskjöld accompanied the reading musically with his own compositions.
