In the third episode of Out of Focus, Johann König talks to Merve Çağlar about his own experiences in the art world and how he started König Galerie. They discuss how the pandemic has changed the experience of art, the future of art business, as well as what an art gallery should be in the 21st century.
“Art is an essential part of all our lives. If you put it in these identical art spaces, it freezes context and view on art. It is important to experience art in a different environment than only the white cube; it just adds to the quality of experience.”Johann König, Founder of König Galerie
“That’s why it’s important to open up different fields, to be ready for certain changes.”Johann König, Founder of König Galerie
