Galerie Martina Kaiser

  • Cologne
  • Booth A11

Martina Kaiser, a gallery owner in Cologne since 1997, has been presenting her art programme since November 20011 in the rooms of the former heritage- protected cardboard factory which was rebuilt as a studio and gallery by the architects Thies Marwede and professor Schneider-Wesseling in 1983. It was then Paul Maenz, one of the most prominent gallery owners in the 70s- 90s, who made this legendary place a centre of contemporary art. Bismarckstraße 50 is close to the centre hype in the so-called Belgian Borough in Cologne and a place for creative minds and artists to meet and cluttered with galleries, agencies and media protagonists. The gallery houses a wide range of exhibits and six times in the year international contemporary artifacts from the media, photographs, paintings and sculptures are shown. Based on contemporary art the portfolio includes international artists such as Aljoscha, Umberto Cicerie, Jìrî Georg Dokoupil, Arne Quinze, Bongchull Shin and Zhuang Hong Yi. Special exhibitions featured selected works from artists who were relevant for the canon of the Rhineland such as Daniel Spoerri, Otto Piene and Martin Noël. Martina Kaiser also focusses on women in art, showcasing works from Rosemarie Trockel, Karin Kneffel, Leiko Ikemura, Cornelia Schleime and Sabine Moritz in group exhibitions. The gallery also offers a platform for young artists like Alexander Höller and Bongchull Shin who started their international career at this place.
