MISA #3

MISA #3
10 AUGUST - 22 AUGUST, 2021
KÖNIG GALERIE / ST. AGNES

MISA is an art market in the KÖNIG GALERIE in Berlin that presents works from the primary and secondary market. At the beginning of 2021, Lena Winter took over the management of MISA. With her many years of in-depth experience in the auction market, most recently as Head of Contemporary Art at Ketterer in Munich, she has had a lasting impact on the art market.

“I want to make art accessible to everyone, which is why MISA offers a multi-faceted program. Growing up in an artistic environment, I was able to train my eye from an early age. Later, I was able to develop it further through my professional activity as an auctioneer in the secondary market. When choosing works for MISA and misa.art, I always ask myself: was the work in question avant-garde at the time? Were the artists co founders of a movement? Have the artists shaped the canon of their time? Can recently rediscovered artists lead the way for the current generation of young artists?”

- Lena Winter

For the first time ever, 500 works of art by more than 300 artists will be presented in thematic booths that provide the arthistorical context for the works on offer. In order to convey knowledge to connoisseurs and beginners alike, the works, which cover 70 years of art history, will be arranged in 13 booths according to movements, artist groups, style, zeitgeist and mood and contrasted with one another. These include booths on such topics as Junge Wilde and City-Country-River, Pop Art and Color, Post War and Post Internet, East German Art and African Art, photography and NFTs.

The program consists of a diverse selection of emerging and established artists of both national and international repute, as well as digital and traditional art. Among those represented are such renowned names as Albert Oehlen, Rosemarie Trockel, Günter Fruhtrunk, Robert Longo and Martin Kippenberger and Ultra Contemporary Artists such as Johanna Dumet, Denise Rudolf Frank and Fabian Warnsing.
