Interview with Olga Temnikova, Co-founder of the gallery Temnikova & Kasela in Tallinn

Private art galleries are relatively rare in Estonia. But there is no rule without exeption: Since 2012 Temnikova & Kasela in Tallinn represent artists in a classical way by helping with their communications and artwork production. The artists come from the region as well as from abroad, with a special focus on those, whose process is enriching for the local scene.

Hunt Kastner, Prague

Interview with Camille Hunt and Kacha Kastner, founder of the gallery Hunt Kastner in Prague

Prague is not the place that pops up in your mind at first if you think of contemporary art. Out of this need an American and a Canadian opened Hunt Kastner in 2005. Kacha Kaster came to Prague in 1991, she has family here. Camille Hunt is Canadian, who came originally to teach English, and was only planning to stay for a year maximum.

Pinksummer, Genoa

Interview with Antonella Berruti, founder of the gallery Pinksummer in Genoa

Pinksummer. A name which evocates optimism, warmth, a long season of sunsets on the sea. Did Antonella Berruti and Francesca Pennone have this image in mind when they started their contemporary art gallery in Genoa? No, they received the inspiration via email from Japan.

Interview with Emmanuel Hervé, founder of Galerie Emmanuel Hervé in Paris

Emmanuel Hervé liked the idea of being at an art fair with a booth that’s bigger than his gallery. In 2011 he opened his very small space in Belleville, where he pays attention to international artist barely visible in France. But at the end, everything seems to be a question of “Coup de cœur“.

Interview with Finola Jones, founder of the gallery Mother's Tankstation Limited in Dublin

In 2006 when Finola Jones founded her gallery, Dublin seemed like a blank spot on the map of contemporary art. Since then Mother’s Tankstation Limited has brought artists like Mairead O’hEocha, Nina Canell, Uri Aran, and Noel McKenna to international recognition by showing them at art fairs and off site shows. But everything begins with an old Guinness building in Dublin and a manifesto.

Interview with Guillaume Sultana, founder of Galerie Sultana in Paris

The gallery as a laboratory for projects where artists work on their ideas, that’s how Guillaume Sultana describes the role of a gallery today. Rooted in the history of Paris as one of the most traditional places for art, Guillaume Sultana sees Belleville as the ideal place for his gallery to build a network and to strengthen the artist’s visibility through that synergy.

A country torn apart by war that is now a place full of young people and possibilities, Kosovo is usually not considered to be in the central spot of the art map. Yet two Austrian women fell in love with Pristina and opened here, in October 2014, the first international gallery of Kosovo.
