FOUNDER, KÖNIG GALERIE
„Johann König is a Berlin-based gallery owner with his gallery in the brutalist rooms of the former Catholic St. Agnes Church in Berlin-Kreuzberg. He succeeds in taking a new look at the art market, using the digitalisation of society for the art world and thus leading the art trade into a new era. He is curious about new concepts and technologies and playfully uses new forms of communication. Johann questions traditional framework conditions of the art market unconcernedly and against resistance and thus achieves transparency and democratisation. Last but not least, he breaks down inhibitions and thus enables a dialogue with contemporary art without fear of contact."
