Johann König

Art Dealer & Gallery Owner
König Galerie

Johann König is a German art dealer and gallery owner. He founded König Galerie in 2002 and currently represents 38 international emerging and established artists. The programme focuses on interdisciplinary, concept-oriented and space-based approaches in a variety of media including sculpture, video, sound, painting, printmaking, photography and performance.

In 2015, the gallery moved to St Agnes, a former Catholic church and community centre in Kreuzberg, Berlin. The gallery complex accommodates a magazine, a publishing company, a university branch and a cafe. An iconic example of late 1960s German Brutalism, designed by Werner Düttmann, the building was renovated by Arno Brandlhuber, who founded his collaborative Berlin-based practice, Brandlhuber+, in 2006.
