until 19.03. | #3304ARTatBerlin | Bermel von Luxburg Gallery presents in cooperation with Kunstleben Berlin and Choi&Choi Gallery Köln/Seoul from 21st January 2022 the group show “Berlin meets Seoul – Being Human”.
Berlin and Seoul – two fascinating metropolises and capitals with an attractive and vibrant art scene. Both cities have something in common due to the former and existing separation of the countries. And both cities have developed into the most important art scenes in the world.
In cooperation with the galleries CHOI&CHOI in Seoul and Bermel von Luxburg in Berlin, Kunstleben Berlin continues its “Berlin meets … series”. Under the title “Menschsein / Being Human” Kunstleben Berlin Berlin meets Seoul in the gallery Bermel von Luxburg under the curatorial direction of Dr. Rania Sid Otmane presents eleven renowned artists from both countries: Armin Boehm, Peter Herrmann, Jinyoung Yu, Jaeho Jung, Wonkun Jun, Seahyun Lee, Kelvin Kyung Kun Park, David Lehmann, Nikolai Makarov, Robert Pan, Regina Sell.
The exhibition will be opened on January 21 by business manager Soyeon Schröder-Kim and the head of the cultural department of the Korean Embassy, Dr. Bongki Lee.
The exhibition Berlin meets Seoul will then follow in the Korean capital in November 2022. In the CHOI&CHOI gallery, artists from both countries will then show their works of art to a broad public. The exhibitions will be accompanied by interesting programs.
Kunstleben Berlin brings people together worldwide and makes art, artists and galleries visible. It started in 2009 with artists from New York and Berlin exhibiting art together in their cities in collaboration with galleries. This project organizes exhibitions in both countries on an annual basis. Berlin meets New York has taken place ten times to date. Art knows no borders. After Berlin meets New York, Berlin meets Taipei 2020 was launched despite the pandemic. For the first time a group exhibition of German artists was shown in Taiwan. With the support of the German Federal Foreign Office, Kunstleben Berlin gave Berlin artists the opportunity to make their art visible in Taiwan.
Berlin meets Seoul is a project of Kunstleben Berlin in collaboration with CHOI&CHOI (formerly CHOI&LAGER) Gallery, a contemporary art gallery based in Cologne (since 2012) and Seoul. Since the gallery’s inception, directors Jinhee and Sunhee Choi have built an extensive network of artists and institutions, ranging from Korea to London, Paris, Berlin, and Geneva, to facilitate greater cultural exchange between metropolises.
The establishment of Bermel von Luxburg Gallery in 2018 is the merger between two talented visionaries – Mario Bermel, a passionate art collector as well as international art dealer, active all over the world, with a focus on the art centers of Berlin and Paris – and the von Luxburg family, who by tradition broker international art. The gallery specializes in international modern and contemporary art.
