Interview with Daniel Marzona, founder of the gallery Daniel Marzona in Berlin

“Don’t expect anything.” The title of Paolo Chiasera’s exhibition at Daniel Marzona’s gallery could be a leitmotif for Marzona himself. The son of the internationally known art collector Egidio Marzona, after having worked for seven years at Konrad Fischer’s Berlin branch, Daniel Marzona now goes his own way with his Berlin gallery, opened in 2014 at the southern end of Friedrichstrasse.

Interview with Alexander Levy, founder of the gallery Alexander Levy in Berlin

Alexander Levy left the music business for the art world. With his decision to turn his father’s Berlin outpost into a gallery for young art, he brought a breath of fresh air to the Rudi-Dutschke-Straße right in the middle of the newspaper district. Here is the story of how everything happened.

Schwarz Contemporary, Berlin

Interview with Anne Schwarz, founder of the gallery Schwarz Contemporary in Berlin

When you go to visit Schwarz Contemporary, in the hip neighborhood of Neukölln, you wonder where the entrance is. The gallery, in fact, has two windows on the street, but the frosted glass does not allow you to look inside. Take the gate to the backyard and there, on the left hand, you find the door: an original 1950s entrance in wood and glass with authentic buzzer and registration desk.

Duve, Berlin

Interview with Alexander Duve, founder of the gallery Duve in Berlin

When Marguerite Humeau had her solo show at Duve in May 2015, Alexander Duve allowed her to turn his gallery from a white cube to an hypnotic yellow room, which was entirely painted with color mixed with two grams of the deadly poisonous venom of the black mamba snake. For the entire duration of the show, two graceful white sculptures dispensed potions and antidotes, bodily fluids with powers of life and death.

Interview with Barak Bar-Am, co-founder of the gallery Neumeister Bar-Am in Berlin

Can Berlin’s bourgeois Charlottenburg district become a place for young and innovative art galleries? Yes, according to Barak Bar-Am, who opened his gallery there in September 2013 with Jean-Pierre Neumeister. The gallery Neumeister Bar-Am is located on the second floor of the old post office on Goethestrasse, a red-brick and grey-sandstone building from the end of the 19th century shared with established Berlin gallery Max Hetzler.
