Friedrich Loock born 1968 in Berlin, Germany. In 1988 Loock founded the gallery Wohnmaschine,the name deriving from Le Corbusier’s architectural theory. „I first chose it to describe my personal exhibition concept when I started showing art in my private apartment in East Berlin.“ Over the years Loock developed a broad international program with very different artists all sharing a common interest in the investigation of narrative, fictional and figurative tendencies in contemporary art. Wohnmaschine has participated in a wide range of international art fairs including Art Forum Berlin, art cologne, ARCO, MACO, and the Armory Show.
With the ambitious project of the VOLTAshow 01 Loock wants to open the marketplace in Basel forrelated galleries emphasizing low costs and high quality creating a stage made by galleries for galleries.
