PSM is a contemporary art gallery in Berlin, Germany. It was opened in September 2008 by Sabine Schmidt to provide a platform for novel and experimental international artists. The name and logo of the gallery relate to Schmidt’s grandfather, Paul Schmidt, who founded a machine production factory, PSM (Paul Schmidt Maschinenfabrik), after World War II. True to the industrial inspiration behind PSM’s logo, the gallery produces large-scale, atmospheric exhibitions that often encourage viewer participation or allow them to feel like they are a part of the show. The gallery program thus focuses on conceptual mixed-media art with an emphasis on three-dimensional and performance-based works. At the moment, the gallery’s program consists of fourteen international artists born between 1964 and 1989. Many of the artists shown by PSM, like Catherine Biocca, Christian Falsnaes, and Nadira Husain, push the boundaries of what it means to address and engage the art viewing public. This spirit is continued in PSM's commitment to regional and international art fairs. In September 2017 PSM moved to a new 159-square-meter space, located across the canal from Berlin’s Neue Nationalgalerie and Kulturforum, in an architecturally modified space in a residential building. The location, at Schoeneberger Ufer 61, is also near several other contemporary art galleries, on Potsdamer Straße, and integrates the gallery into the cultural life of Berlin.
