Galerie Neu is a contemporary art gallery founded in 1994 by Alexander Schroeder and Thilo Wermke in Berlin’s Mitte district. Originally, the focus of their activities was Berlin’s young and dynamic art scene; Neu showed then emerging artists such as Kai Althoff, Manfred Pernice, Daniel Pflumm, and Josephine Pryde, whose work has since then gained international attention. Since the late 1990s Neu has broadened the scope of its activities and now represents 30 artists, among them emerging ones (Kitty Kraus, Sergej Jensen, Klara Lidén) and others whose oeuvre spans several decades (Manfred Pernice, Cerith Wyn Evans). In 2014 Galerie Neu relocated to a new address in Berlin’s Mitte, after having presented shows of new artists to the roster such as Jana Euler, Matias Faldbakken and John Knight and expand on their program with exhibitions by Yngve Holen, Alex Hubbard and Reena Spaulings. The gallery’s artists are regularly exhibiting in international museums and several of them have been included in exhibitions such as documenta, Skulptur Projekte Muenster, and the Venice Biennale. Since the 1990s Galerie Neu has participated in all major international art fairs.
