Galerie Biesenbach was founded in 2012 and is run by its owner Stéphane Biesenbach in collaboration with Bettina Rogulla. Since the beginning of 2020 - after its move from St.-Apern-Straße - the gallery's exhibition rooms continue to be located in the gallery centre of Cologne's city centre in the Haus der Stiftungen at Zeughausstraße 26, 1st floor, 50667 Cologne.
Biesenbach shows international contemporary art with a focus on painting and wall sculpture. We attach importance to finding a balance between abstract and figurative positions in our programme and promote and represent both young and already established positions. A long-term cooperation with our artists is the goal of our gallery work.
In cooperation with galleries, art associations and museums, we support the work of our artists so that their works are also shown outside the gallery. 6 to 8 solo exhibitions and thematic group exhibitions per year within our own gallery spaces, often in cooperation with curators, sharpen the profile of the gallery. The works of the artists we represent can be found in renowned public and private collections.
Since the beginning of 2020, "Online Only" exhibitions by our gallery artists - with a focus on older or less frequently shown works - or the ART MATTERS series - an open call competition held twice a year - complement our programme. As stand-alone exhibition points in our gallery programme, these virtual projects are fuelled by wide-ranging social media campaigns and, with their own online presence through Viewing Room and Web Shop, are given an important place alongside our physical presentations.
After many years of mainly concentrating on our location in Cologne, we have been regularly participating in art fairs again since 2019, such as paper positions berlin, POSITIONS Berlin Art Fair, Luxemburg Art Week / The Fair and Bienvenue Art Fair in Paris.
For private individuals and companies, we offer professional and individually tailored advice on the acquisition of 20th and 21st century art. Tailored to the personal goals of our clients, we support both established collectors and young art lovers who want to build up their own collection. We help and advise in the search for and acquisition of suitable artworks in artists' studios, galleries and at art fairs.
