Filmstill, Gabrielle Kruger, 2024
Gabrielle Kruger Video

It's worth taking a look behind the scenes – South African artist Gabrielle Kruger takes us into her studio and shows us her very individual way of working.

Gabrielle Kruger's work has already been shown in several group exhibitions at our gallery in Leipzig. Now we are also presenting her work on our stand at the fair in Cape Town, where the South African artist also lives and works.
Gabrielle Kruger has developed a process where the paint mimics the viscosity of glue when wet and the elasticity of rubber when dry. Drawn to the malleability of her chosen medium, the artist pushes and plays with the limits of acrylic paint.
You can now look over her shoulder as she creates her works using this exciting technique. So dive in and enjoy Gabrielle Kruger's weave!

Enjoy this intimate view into the solo presentation BODEN by Ricarda Roggan at our gallery in Leipzig and take a look behind the scenes.

The photographer describes her artistic work, the process of searching and finding, what interests her in a particular motive and how the always analoge images come into being. In the second part of the video, Ricarda Roggan is taking us into her studio for an exclusive sneak peek into the exhibtion making.

"It is always a conversation with the things or with the spaces, so that I can ask questions like, “What's going on here and why is it like this? And why are there such strange, such scratch marks in these clay walls?” Who was there 100, 200 years ago?” I'm just incredibly interested in that." (Ricarda Roggan)

Stefan Guggisberg Video

Follow us into the universe of painting and drawing by Stefan Guggisberg and learn how his works are created with very unique techniques.

In this video the artist is giving you a tour through his exhibition Facing the Light at our Berlin gallery and great insight into his work series of oil on paper and iPad drawings.
"In fact what impresses me about painting is that you can go back 40,000 years and these images are still there and, above all, they still reach us. So the drawings permeate everything - it reaches and touches us. And that's a form of communication that I think only exists once." (Stefan Guggisberg)

Filmstill, Ulrike Theusner, Mahagonny, Leipzig, 2023
Ulrike Theusner Video

In this interview, Ulrike Theusner is taking you with her to Mahagonny. Enjoy!

Mahagonny – that’s the city of unbridled hedonism invented by Bertolt Brecht and Kurt Weill, where having no money is a crime punished by death. Ulrike Theusner has turned her years of interest in Mahagonny into her current exhibition. She conceived an oversized fictional studio wall on which she has pinned pastels and drawing, prints, and photographs, all shreds of memories of her life between Europe and the United States.
"All images are of course always closely related to my current emotional state, to my experience, to life itself. You can't put it into words very well, but if something is transferred, then I've definitely achieved what I wanted, which is to transport something and to touch the emotional level of the viewer. That's what art is for."

Filmstill, David Schnell, stereo, Leipzig 2021
David Schnell Video

Throwback: Join us for a tour through Schnell's exhibition in Leipzig 2021. We associate the resounding word S T E R E O with the world of sound and music. The letters are spaced out on the amplifier of the audio system, and the lowering of the needle on the record starts a crackle; a short wait, and then, the instruments and sounds coming from the left and right open up a space.

The pleasure of listening to music on a good stereo system has a lot to do with looking at David Schnell’s pictures. The quality of the stereo system plays an important role here, because a high-quality system makes the details that play the space ring out properly.

Self Portrait by Martin Eder
Martin Eder Audio

In this podcast episode of DAS IST KUNST at the Deichtorhallen Hamburg, Friederike Herr talks to Martin Eder about his art, rainbows - and about Otto Dix.

The conversation took place in the context of the exhibition Dix und die Gegenwart at the Deichtorhallen Hamburg, in which Martin Eder is represented with some works.
"You have to make pictures that you are afraid of, so anyone who is afraid of fluffy pets should give the artist's large-format oil paintings a wide berth.", says the Berlin artist.

Filmstill, Carsten Nicolai "unicolor" at LUX 2023
Carsten Nicolai Video

Carsten Nicolai’s artistic output has taken many forms over the past three decades. His 2014 piece unicolor – showing at LUX: New Wave of Contemporary Art, a new exhibition co-curated by Fact and SUUM Project in 2023 – is one of the artist’s most immersive works.

In this film, Nicolai talks to Fact about the ideas behind unicolor and how the musical experimentation in Berlin that followed the fall of the wall in 1989 kickstarted an ongoing career of artistic innovation. You will see the installation unfolding against a long projection wall with two mirror walls on each side, creating the impression of extending into infinity.

Presented at LUX: New Wave of Contemporary Art at London’s 180 Studios and SUUM X, Dongdaemun Design Plaza, Seoul until December 2023.

Filmstill, Be Water, group show, 2023
Be Water / Group show Video

Be Water presents four exciting positions from East Asia: JE Yeoran (1960), LI Qing (1981), Tatsuma TAKEDA (1988), and ZHANG XU Zhan (1988).

With a variety of different media and against the background of different cultural contexts, the four artists span a wide net of aesthetic and thematic interpretations of the theme of water as paradox. Immerse yourself in the various ways in which water is approached in Eastern and Western philosophies, and it becomes clear that this element is of vital importance to the collective perception of humankind. No wonder that artists from all eras and all parts of the world have always been drawn to the theme of water. It is the element from which our ancestors emerged millions of years ago and from which we still emerge today when we leave the womb. Like blood, it is a connecting thread that is the same for all human beings, regardless of their origin.
For more than 15 years we have been successfully showing the artists of the Galerie EIGEN + ART in Asia. We are very happy to be able to continuously enable the fantastic exchange again and again.
