KLEMM’S was founded in November 2007 by Sebastian Klemm and Silvia Bonsiepe as a gallery for conceptual contemporary art. Our roster of artists are linked by their shared interests in the transformation of experienced reality and distinctive critique of contemporary social currents. We support positions and artists who work to overcome limitations in content and form bringing new approaches to the interrogation of their medium. It is important for us to support and accompany the artists through all stages of their development and steadily build their careers in a progressive international context. In conceiving our program, it is essential for us to offer the artists a platform that allows their conceptual approaches to unfold individually and also to reflect upon and enhance each other.
Alongside our solo exhibitions of represented artists, we host carte-blanche projects by invited curators, artist-curated exhibitions and regular film screenings or artist talks. In an effort to promote and deepen the critical dialogue about the development of artistic expression, we work closely with the artists to actively document their projects and new work with unique publications and artists’ books.
