Contemporary Art

In our Contemporary Art department, we focus on German artists from the generation that worked from the 1960s through the 1990s, such as Albert Oehlen, Martin Kippenberger, Günther Förg or Peter Roehr.  In general, however, numerous artistic movements from the 1960s up until the present day are represented in our contemporary art auctions: Zero, Minimalism, Conceptual Art, Pop-Art, and even Bad Painting and Postmodern Realism.  The works on offer include outstanding paintings and drawings as well as sculptures and installations by a large number of renowned German and international artists, such as Andy Warhol, Gerhard Richter, Robert Indiana, or Isa Genzken.  In addition, we are dedicated to the presentation and sale of contemporary art, which we support by collaborating on exhibitions and accompanying catalogues in the galleries at Fasanenstrasse 27 and our other representative offices, and we work closely with both emerging and established artists.
