Samuelis Baumgarte Galerie looks back on a 40-year-old tradition of art advising. Founded by Ruth Baumgarte in 1975, the business was restructured in 1986 by her son, Alexander Baumgarte, to today’s Samuelis Baumgarte Galerie. Since 1988, Alexander Baumgarte, who built the nowadays globally operating gallery from the mid 1980s, has been the gallery’s principal. The gallery is located in the heart of the City of Bielefeld, opposite the city hall and the theatre and offers more than 1,000 square meters of exhibition space.
The architecture of the building allows almost every kind of exhibition concept including painting, photography, installation and sculpture. As a member of the “Federal Association of Galleries and Art Dealers of Germany”, the gallery constantly exhibits international contemporary art, classic modern and young experimental tendencies.
Over 300 solo and themed exhibitions have been presented at the gallery in Bielefeld and important art fairs such as ART COLOGNE, art forum berlin, Arte Fiera Bologna or FIAC in Paris. The gallery specialises on both established and new positions of 20th and 21st Century Art, while focussing on intermedia tendencies. The gallery’s activities emphasise on the presentation of significant transnational artistic expression, incorporating various styles as a mirror of our time.
The gallery considers its commitment and full support to its artists as being a natural responsibility, as they represent the heart of the company.
