The summer exhibition in the KÖNIG GALERIE is curated by Kasper König, the father of the gallerist.

Beyond the dialogue with his son Johann, he was attracted by the extraordinary architecture of the gallery in the former Catholic church of St. Agnes. The high nave, preserved in its original proportions, today presents itself as a fabulous exhibition hall, representing a challenge for every artist and curator.

König exhibits works by Polly Apfelbaum, Olle Baertling, Alisa Baremboym, Thomas Bayrle, Alighiero e Boetti, Nicole Eisenman, Fischli/Weiss, Thomas Hirschhorn, Mike Kelley, Annette Kelm, Marko Lehanka, Morris Louis, Justin Matherley, Emeka Ogboh, Manfred Pernice, Heidi Specker, Susi Pop, Rosemarie Trockel and Alisa Yoffe in the staircase of the tower as well as in the two-story building ensemble. As he says, their selection rests on “two thematic pillars.” They are based on Théodore Géricault’s monumental historical painting The Raft of the Medusa (1819) and Albrecht Dürer’s Peasants' Column from 1525.
