Galerie Wedding – Raum für zeitgenössische Kunst is one of Berlin Mitte’s district galleries. It is located in the highly diverse area between Müllerstraße and Leopoldplatz in a listed building belonging to expressionism. Just as the architecture of the building was part of a utopian social project at the time, the gallery on the ground floor is a place for contemporary forms of artistic expression and future models of city living. Galerie Wedding champions discursive formats and its artistic direction is led by the Danish curator Solvej Helweg Ovesen. The gallery and the programme are known above all for innovative projects with local artists from all over the world and for the inclusion of public space. Beyond Berlin, the gallery has also made a name for itself with the exhibition programmes Post Other Wedding /POW, Unsustainable Privileges (UP) and Soft Solidarity (SOS).

Galerie Wedding has always fostered a multifaceted view of art and society, pushing beyond traditional comfort zones. The gallery’s new year-long program ‘POLY’ focuses on the multidimensional nature of contemporary life and its forms of expression. ‘Poly’ signifies ‘plurality, multitude, and diversity’.

“As systems, nature, institutions, and biopolitics are in a state of flux, and as society attempts to reconfigure itself amidst current crises and emerging pressures, we are being challenged to evolve our skills and approaches to life. We must adapt to become more diverse and polyvalent. That is the cornerstone of our new polymorphic and polyphonic exhibitions” (Solvej Ovesen, artistic director, Galerie Wedding).

Galerie Wedding offers educational programs for children, teenagers school and KiTa groups during exhibitions.
