Konrad Fischer Galerie

The gallery, located in Lindenstrasse, Berlin, features in its exhibition programme younger and established international artists

In October 1967, when Konrad and Dorothee Fischer opened a tiny exhibition space in a disused alley in the center of Dusseldorf with an exhibition of work by Carl Andre, Minimal and Conceptual Art were virtually unknown in Europe. Many artists of those days, including Richard Long, Bruce Nauman, Sol LeWitt, On Kawara, Lawrence Weiner, Hanne Darboven and Robert Ryman had their first European solo exhibitions at “Ausstellungen bei Konrad Fischer“ and their work has been exhibited by the gallery ever since.

Konrad and Dorothee Fischer’s approach consisted of inviting the artists themselves to Dusseldorf rather than just having their works presented there. This not only led to the development of an international network of artists, it also contributed to the creation of site-specific sculptures, paintings and installations. Daniel Buren introduced his interventions, Gilbert & George found a platform for their “Singing Sculpture” and Wolfgang Laib installed sculptures made of beeswax and pollen. New conceptual approaches in painting as well as photography were shown in presentations of work by Robert Mangold, Alan Charlton, Bernd and Hilla Becher and Jan Dibbets whereas Arte Povera artists including Giuseppe Penone, Giovanni Anselmo, Mario Merz and Jannis Kounellis were presented in the gallery shortly after the term had been coined.

The gallery’s program was further enlarged to include the work of artists such as Tony Cragg, Harald Klingelhöller, Rita McBride, Thomas Ruff, Thomas Schütte and Jerry Zeniuk. A second and third generation of new artists including Guy Ben-Ner, Peter Buggenhout, Aleana Egan, Jim Lambie, Manfred Pernice, Magnus Plessen, Wolfgang Plöger, Gregor Schneider and Paloma Varga Weisz has joined the gallery since.

In the fall of 2007 Konrad Fischer Galerie opened an additional space in Berlin. Younger international artists as well as the gallery’s nearly five decades of history are featured in the exhibition program. The gallery is now run by Berta Fischer.
