Q Gallery Berlin opened at the end of November 2018 in Großgörschenstraße in the north of Schöneberg – one of the most historic areas of Berlin. In the 1920s, a large number of publishing houses and galleries were located here. The area was popular with artists and literary figures. Claire Waldoff and Joseph von Eichendorff are just two names of those who lived and worked here. In 1963, Berlin’s first producer’s gallery opened at number 35, and the well-known UFO Club Berlin moved into the street shortly before the fall of the Berlin Wall.
Q Gallery Berlin wants to become part of this history. It focuses on contemporary art in the field of tension between European artists from the Orient and the Occident. The European continent stretches from the Caspian Sea across Central Europe to the Strait of Gibraltar in the immediate vicinity of the African continent. This geographical arc is significant as a programmatic spectrum for the Q Gallery’s art education and exhibitions.

Q Gallery Berlin is a partner gallery of Q Gallery Baku, which is located in the cultural centre of the Old City (Icheri Sheher) of the Azerbaijani capital Baku. Q Gallery Baku is today considered a leading institution in the field of contemporary painting in Azerbaijan. Its aim is to make the country’s art known beyond its borders through exhibitions of classical as well as young, up-and-coming artists from the former Soviet republic. Azerbaijan was part of the Northern Silk Road, which was not only a trade route but also promoted cultural and scientific exchange between Europe, the Orient and Asia. Against this historical backdrop, Q Gallery Berlin also repeatedly presents works by Azerbaijani artists in Berlin.
Q Gallery Berlin was founded by Emin Mammadov, owner of Q Gallery Baku. He had previously successfully established the Berlin Baku Gallery in Berlin. It enriched Berlin’s cultural life with a variety of exhibitions and events, and also gained international attention as co-curator at the 56th Venice Biennale.exhibitions
