Sebastian Klemm and Silvia Bonsiepe founded KLEMM’S as a gallery for contemporary art in 2007. They represent artists from different generations, cultural backgrounds and media whose work is linked by a shared interest in the transformation of experienced reality and who engage with social realities in combination with an aesthetic consciousness.
It is important for Klemm’s to support and accompany the artists through the early stages of their development and steadily foster their development and careers in a progressive international context. In conceiving the program, it is essential for them to offer the artists a platform that allows their conceptual approaches to unfold individually and also to reflect upon and enhance each other.
Alongside solo exhibitions of represented artists, Klemm’s hosts carte-blanche projects by invited curators, artist-curated exhibitions and regular film screenings or artist talks. In an effort to promote and deepen the critical dialogue about the development of artistic expression, Klemm’s works closely with the artists to actively document their projects and new work with unique publications and artists’ books.
