Gregor Podnar

Berlin-based gallerist

Gregor Podnar started out as a curator in the early 1990s, founded his gallery in Slovenia in 2003 as part of the cultural production organisation Association DUM and eventually opened a second and more conventionally commercial space in Berlin, now his primary base, in 2007.

In moving to a commercial gallery, Podnar wanted to provide Eastern European artists who had institutional success with commercial support that was then lacking. His programme remains focused on artists from Eastern Europe, among them Attila Csörgö, Vadim Fiškin, Alexander Gutke, the Slovenian collective IRWIN, Dan Perjovschi, Goran Petercol and Tobias Putrih, but also includes young international artists such as Magnus Larsson and Ariel Schlesinger.
