Johann König

Berlin-based gallerist

Johann König is the kind of gallery that gets included in trendier fair projects such as New York’s Independent while showing up the road at the Armory at the same time. The power of the Berlin-based dealership is to consistently straddle various worlds – high-end museum shows, highly covetable and sellable work, clever artists with critical punch and sleek, almost chic wares.

The gallery’s artists, including Tatiana Trouvé, Jeppe Hein and Kris Martin, have had a generous serving of major institutional shows this year, and the gallery continues to stake out a secure place for itself, influencing commercial and critical agendas internationally.
