Past exhibition: "in your face" with Benedikt Gahl and Patrick Ostrowsky


Two person show with Benedikt Gahl & Patrick Ostrowsky

The exhibition “in your face” features a space transcending dialogue between the painterly and sculptural strategies of Benedikt Gahl and Patrick Ostrowsky. What their art has in common is that the works are non-perfect, processual and prefer an unrefined, direct language of forms. This exhibition stands for an art that follows its own aesthetic principles, does not stage itself as a design object, and does not slip quietly into its environment.


Past exhibition project: It's like magic to me

11. – 24.10.2019
Opening: October 10, 7-9pm

With students and young graduates of the Academy of Fine Arts Munich: Philipp Benkert, Janna Jirkova, Jan Dominik Kudla, Anna M. Pascó Boltà and Lina Zylla


Past exhibition: Caro Jost - "walk the talk"

From July 13 until September 27, 2019

The exhibition “walk the talk” marks Caro Jost’s first solo exhibition at Galerie Britta von Rettberg. The show emphasizes works from her new series of “Public Paintings”. In these pieces, she refers to the Summer of 2001 in New York City, where a year earlier, she had begun her career as an artist at the Art Students League. Riveted by the pulsating life in this city of winners and losers, the artist began putting together her personal archive of material and photographs. Even today, her time spent there continues to determine the paths she pursues in her work in general.

Past exhibition: "freude" (joy) with Boban Andjelkovic and Gülbin Ünlü

From May 17. until June 29, 2019

From May 17 through June 29, 2019, the Galerie Britta von Rettberg will be showing the exhibition “freude” featuring works by Gülbin Ünlü and Boban Andjelkovic. The title of the exhibition stands for the joy of the artistic process and for the joy of experimenting with materials and techniques, but it also stands for the joy of playing with expectations. In their art, Gülbin Ünlü and Boban Andjelkovic both emphasize energy, random chance, and the imperfect. At the same time, their work conceals a keen sensibility for contemporary themes. Without preaching or passing judgement, both artists are able to address current themes through their own subtle pictorial languages, often with a humorous undertone.


Past exhibition: "works on paper" with Youjin Yi, Philipp Messner, Leonhard Hurzlmeier and Hansjoerg Dobliar

From April 05 until May 08, 2019

The Galerie Britta von Rettberg will be showing selected works on paper by artists Youjin Yi, Hansjoerg Dobliar, Leonhard Hurzlmeier and Philipp Messner from April 5 through May 8, 2019. Paper is not merely a material in these works, however, because, in the end, the condition of the paper always remains as a visible component of the work.

The Britta von Rettberg Gallery will be presenting current work by artist Asta von Unger from May 16–July 6, 2018.

In her ink works on canvas, silk paper and aluminum, Munich artist Asta von Unger feels her way to the very boundaries of nothingness. The more experience a person has, the more extensive a person’s knowledge; the denser their horizon of experience, the greater their tendency toward reduction and the more they gravitate toward emptiness and thus the experience of the lightness of their journey.


Past Exhibition: Raymond Gantner - How I learned to stop worrying, 17.03. - 04.05.2018

The Rettberg Gallery presents artist Raymond Gantner for the first time in a solo exhibition titled “How I learned to stop worrying”.

This exhibition focuses on selected silkscreen prints and screen-printed collages on paper and canvas that were produced during the last two years.
