»10 JAHRE GALERIE SPRINGER BERLIN –
Ten Years of Galerie Springer Berlin – Anniversary Exhibition
We are delighted to invite you to our group exhibition marking the 10th anniversary of Galerie Springer Berlin. When we opened the gallery in its current format 10 years ago, it was founded on Robert Springer’s 20 years’ experience of gallery work stemming from a long family tradition. The decision to run the gallery with Heide Springer resulted in a reorientation of the gallery programme towards photography.
Over the past decade, we are proud to have made an international name for ourselves as a gallery in this diverse field. And alongside the necessary commercial focus, we have always placed great value on quality and curatorial concepts, and see our gallery work as a cultural task. Luck has also played a role in our on-going work in this direction and we are grateful for it.
For example, the area around our traditional location in Berlin-Charlottenburg has again developed into a much sought-after area for galleries. Important public and private institutions as well as photography galleries have since taken up residence close by, so that the area has become an attractive and recognised quarter for all interested parties.
Over the past ten years, we have succeeded in putting on exhibitions with world renowned photographers, including Edward Burtynsky who we represent exclusively in Germany, Evelyn Hofer, Ingar Krauss, Saul Leiter, Ute Mahler and Werner Mahler, Joel Meyerowitz, Loredana Nemes, Arnold Odermatt and Georges Rousse, and we have enjoyed a successful working relationship with the latter two artists for well over 20 years now.
We also present recognised European artists for the first time in Berlin: Catherine Gfeller and Aitor Ortiz. And of course our programme includes Berlin-based photographers, covering new approaches as well as new discoveries, such as Kathrin Linkersdorff who is now active internationally, Maria Jauregui Ponte, Anna Lehmann-Brauns, Lohner Carlson, Wiebke Elzel and Jana Müller, Winfried Muthesius, Ashkan Sahihi, Michael Schäfer and Sebastian Wells, and Jens Liebchen and Peter Klare whose new series were shown in our most recent exhibition.
In our anniversary exhibition, we are presenting a special selection of personal favourites, chosen gems and highlights from the previous decade, and premiering a few new works by our artists.

The two editors of the magazine soлomiya in conversation about the background of their publication, which can be understood as a platform for the expression of the young, creative Ukrainian generation on the Russian war against Ukraine. Artists from Kyiv and Berlin collaborated on the magazine with photographs, collages and texts. For the artist talk we show large-format pictures from the magazine.
