"IN THE AIR: Art News & Gossip" about the Berlin gallery in Blouin Artinfo
Cologne’s Galerie Susanne Zander has announced plans to open a new space in the Mitte district of Berlin at Rosa-Luxemburg-Straße 37. Primarily focused on Outsider Art, the gallery will open during Berlin Art Week this September with a show of works by George Widener, Karl Hans Janke, and Prophet Royal Robertson.
Owners Nicole Delmes and Susanne Zander will continue the gallery’s exploration of what they term “Conceptual Outsider Art” at the new Berlin location. As we learned recently at the gallery’s Independent art fair booth, such conceptual material is often found in archives uncovered by the gallery like pornographic drawings by William Crawford that were found in an abandoned house in Oakland, California.
“We know nothing about our artists except for what we see in the body of the work that we show,” gallery representative Monika Koencke told ARTINFO back in March. “We started with outsider art, but we are really interested in these borderline positions in art. Recently we’ve been more and more interested in what we call conceptual outsider, which is often connected to these archives.”
