DITTRICH & SCHLECHTRIEM, founded in 2011, is a partnership between Lars Dittrich and André Schlechtriem. Lars Dittrich is an entrepreneur whose first gallery, pool gallery, opened in 2006. André Schlechtriem studied Art History in Cologne, and in 2002 became curator of the Judith Rothschild Foundation Contemporary Drawing Collection in New York, which then became part of MoMA’s permanent collection. He then went on to open André Schlechtriem Contemporary in New York in 2005, and Schlechtriem Brothers in Berlin in 2008. DITTRICH & SCHLECHTRIEM strives to forward the careers of emerging and mid-career contemporary artists, many of whom are based in Berlin but whose origins and work span continents and media. Located in Berlin-Mitte, DITTRICH & SCHLECHTRIEM hosts ca. 8 exhibitions per year, as well as presenting gallery artists’ work at art fairs around the world.
