Koenig Galerie is the biggest and most important contemporary art gallery in Berlin

Not only because of his biographical background, Johann König attracted much attention in 2002 with the founding of his Berlin gallery for contemporary art. Significantly before the boom of Berlin as one of the world's most important and most progressive gallery sites, he realized groundbreaking exhibitions. Currently, KÖNIG GALERIE represents 40 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. In May 2015, KÖNIG GALERIE took up St. Agnes, a monumental former church built in the 1960s in the Brutalist style, where museum-like exhibitions take place in two different spaces, the former chapel and nave. In 2017, KÖNIG GALERIE opened KÖNIG LONDON in a former car park in Marylebone, London. In November 2019 KÖNIG TOKIO opened its third branch in Japan presenting artists that are based in Germany.
