The gallerists behind Berlin's understated but heavy-hitting Neugerriemschneider
Tim Neuger and Burkhard Riemschneider have been mainstays in the Berlin art scene since they opened their first Charlottenberg-based gallery in 1994. With Neuger sitting on Art Basel’s powerful selection committee, and with the gallery now nestled in Mitte directly behind the KW Institute for Contemporary Art, their programme boasts some of the most talked about artists of today. Institutions are chomping at the bit to present their works: Mario García Torres and Sharon Lockhart were included in this year’s Manifesta, while Olafur Eliasson’s summer exhibition at the Ch.teau de Versailles demonstrated his continuing ability to seduce the crowds, with a giant waterfall seemingly cascading from the sky. And let’s not forget recent Berlin resident Ai Weiwei, whose exhibition at London’s Royal Academy last winter attracted over 372,000 visitors.
