Founded in 1991 and directed by Marie-Blanche Carlier and Ulrich Gebauer the gallery promotes international contemporary art and currently represents over 30 international artists. The program veers towards aesthetic and conceptual research in the fields of sculpture, installation, film, photography, painting, and drawing.

Rather than following a specific theoretical framework the gallery offers their artists a professional space to experiment. This allows for an antithetical spectrum of positions to be shown and gives the program its independent profile. The ample exhibition space in the Markgrafenstrasse 67, a former industrial shedhall located in the historical press area allows the gallery to show large-scale installations in a museum like setting. In March 2019 the gallery opened a new location in Madrid.

The gallery has proven to be a key platform for the artists’ development by producing crucial exhibitions for their career. A great number of the artists of the gallery have participated in major biennials and international exhibitions as well as having significant solo exhibitions in major international museums.
