Contacts & Details
The gallery’s exhibition spaces are located in Cologne on Neven-DuMont-Strasse 17 and on Elisenstrasse 4-6, in Berlin on Fasanenstrasse 30, as well as in New York on 17 East 82nd Street. Since its founding the gallery has had various locations in Cologne.
Its first location was at Bismark Strasse 50, in a former storage facility of the Cologne gallerist Rudolf Zwirner. In 1988, the gallery opened at Venloer Strasse 21 in Cologne. In 1990, Buchholz & Schipper opened at Albertusstrasse 26 in Cologne, a shop run in collaboration with fellow gallerist Esther Schipper specializing in multiples. In 1992, Buchholz & Buchholz opened on Breite Strasse 36 in Cologne, an exhibition space in the second antiquarian bookshop run by Daniel Buchholz’s father. Since 1994, Galerie Daniel Buchholz has been located at Neven-DuMont-Strasse 17, in the primary location of the antiquarian bookstore that his father founded. Daniel Buchholz converted the former storage spaces of the bookstore into exhibition spaces, and, since his father’s death in 1993, has continued to run Antiquariat Buchholz parallel to the gallery. This address is still the headquarters of the gallery today.
The art historian Christopher Müller began organizing film programs and co-curating exhibitions in the gallery in 1996. Since 2000 he has been partner in the gallery. In 2006 the gallery opened a second exhibition space in Cologne on the nearby Elisenstrasse. In 2008, the gallery opened a branch in Berlin, at Fasanenstrasse 30 in the Charlottenberg neighborhood, and 2015, a branch in New York City, at 17 East 82nd Street at the Upper East Side, Manhattan.
