Wohnmaschine

Presents: Anton Henning, Takehito Koganezawa, Gavin Tremlett, Dimitris Tzamouranis, Miwa Yanagi


Wohnmaschine was founded in Berlin-Mitte in 1988. The name ‘Wohnmaschine’ derives from Le Corbusier’s architectural theory. Friedrich Loock first chose it to describe his exhibition concept when he started showing art in his private apartment in East Berlin. After the fall of the Wall, the gallery focused on Berlin based artists. From 1995 to 1997, Wohnmaschine held annual exhibitions on thematical approaches to painting, photography and sculpture based installation. Catalogues documenting these exhibitions were produced by the gallery. In 1998, Wohnmaschine moved to its permanent space in Tucholskystrasse 35, Berlin-Mitte. Over the years the gallery developed a broad international program exhibiting Stefan Exler, Valérie Favre, Anton Henning, Michael Kalmbach, Takehito Koganezawa, Mirjam Kuitenbrouwer, Martin Liebscher, Robert Lippok, Florian Merkel, Peter Rösel, Rigo Schmidt, Lorna Simpson, Alec Soth, Yoshihiro Suda, Dimitirs Tzamouranis, Miwa Yanagi and Holly Zausner: artists who share a common interest in the investigation of narrative, fictional and figurative tendencies in contemporary art. In 2005 the collaborative gallery Chung King Project in Los Angeles was founded together with fa projects, London and Kontainer Gallery, Los Angeles. www.chungkingproject.com
