DITTRICH & SCHLECHTRIEM
Katarina Janeckova Walshe
DITTRICH & SCHLECHTRIEM gallery was founded in 2011 by Lars Dittrich and André Schlechtriem in a space on Tucholskystraße in Berlin-Mitte, where they premiered with the first solo show by Julian Charrière.
From the very beginning, the gallery has specialized in conceptual contemporary art across a wide range of media, concentrating on the representation of young artists and providing them with a platform for ambitious projects.
In January 2017, the gallery stepped up its support of innovative emerging artists and relocated within the neighborhood to a larger gallery space at Linienstraße 23.
In addition to publishing artists’ monographs, exhibition catalogues, and commissioned essays, DITTRICH & SCHLECHTRIEM regularly engages in institutional and curatorial projects, enhancing the profile of the artists and creating opportunities for artistic development.
The artists represented by the gallery have been invited to take part in international biennials such as the Biennale di Venezia and the Toronto Biennial. They have also been included in institutional collections as well as significant exhibitions at museums such as the Centre Pompidou (Paris), the Whitney Museum of American Art (New York), the Museum of Modern Art (New York), the Martin-Gropius-Bau (Berlin), the Palais de Tokyo (Paris), the Museo d’Arte Moderna di Bologna, the Museo d’arte della Svizzera italiana (Lugano), and the Neue Nationalgalerie (Berlin).
