Johann König meets personalities from the art world. They all deal with art in their own way: they make art, they deal with art, they curate or write. In personal conversations, they provide insight into their work and their careers, recounting formative experiences and influential encounters. What they all have in common is that they have dedicated their lives to art.
"In conversation, I am driven by a great curiosity with which I get to the bottom of things on behalf of my listeners," says König. As host of his podcast, he aims to bring art to as wide an audience as possible. In his informal conversations, he wants to make the art world accessible to everyone, even without prior knowledge, and thus ensure greater openness and transparency.
In KÖNIG KUNST, Johann König speaks with artists, friends, and collaborators of the gallery. Having a track record for giving a platform to the most innovative artists, the gallerist opens the curtains and reveals what happens behind closed doors. Together with his guests, he reflects on the decisions that brought them to the art world, the challenges that lie behind every exhibition, and the inspirations that drag them to a certain work. Tune in, and get fresh insights from leading figures of the art scene.
