SEXAUER (Gallery)

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

SEXAUER is a gallery for contemporary art in Berlin.


The gallery was founded in 2013 by Jan-Philipp Sexauer[1] and represents artists of a younger generation internationally. It was awarded the Berlin Gallery Prize in 2017.[2][3][4]
It is located in a former factory building.

In 2014, she showed the last solo exhibition[5] of the painter Herbert Volkmann a few months before his death.[6] She regularly publishes catalogues and produces short films about the exhibitions. She participates in art fairs internationally. In 2015, on the occasion of the exhibition “24h Skulptur[7] together with the artist Andreas Greiner and the art historian Ursula Ströbele, she published the book “24h Skulptur – notes on time sculptures” about an expanded concept of sculpture.[8][9]

Since 2020, SEXAUER has been operating the SEXAUER SHOWROOM in Berlin-Charlottenburg in addition to the exhibition hall in Weißensee. Among other things, the exhibition series INTERACTIONS will be shown there. Artistic positions that interact are juxtaposed, which should lead to a deeper understanding of the works.
