12 -14 contemporary

Discount: 10% on ARTWORK after submission of the QueerCityPass.

12-14 contemporary is a commercial gallery dedicated to the sale of art for supporting sociopolitical and critique relevant projects in a contemporary context.

We engage internationally renowned curators (Cristina Bogdan, Tarin Hughes, Bogomir Doringer, Mario Grubisic, Vasja Nagy and Oscar Sanchez) and artists (Amalie Atkins, Monique Blom, Adela Goldbard, Yumi Watanabe, Teresa Margolles, Ellen Moffat, Laura Rambelli, Exactitudes, Matthias Bade, Shinpei Takeda, Vlad Basarab, Marcus Zobl) to conceptualise topics on different levels and to cross boundaries.

Our long-term cooperation with institutions in Canada, Mexico, Romania, Slovenia, Italy and Spain allow us to make presentations of well-known artists and the mediation of the artists we are representing.

Art is reinterpreted, contextualized and discussed in relation to the art space. Our special interest lies in open set ups, in order to involve the passers-by in a creative act. In addition, we prefer projects that are embedded at an intellectual and discursive level. These positions of enlargement and the questioning of the exhibition space as well as the need to discuss the use of material and genre are our motivation.
