Munich is home to many artists who are garnering increased levels of attention on the international scene, which leads to a subsequently increased demand for exhibition spaces. We profile key galleries showcasing some serious German talent.
Galerie Sabine Knust works in tandem with the Maximilian Verlag publishing house, which means that first editions of art publications can be purchased on site. The gallery has shown the works of well known foreign artists such as Andy Warhol, Julian Schnabel, and Per Kirkeby. Sabine Knust has also worked with some of the most famous artists in the German contemporary art scene, such as Jorg Immendorf, who was a member of Neue Wilde, an anti-establishment art movement which arose in 1978. Younger, lesser-known artists also represented here include Ben Cottrell, Philip Furhofer, and Olaf Holzapfel.

Jo van de Loo founded his gallery in 2011, focusing on contemporary photography and solo exhibitions. The gallery represents young German artists such as Philip Gaisser, Arno Schidlowski, and Regine Petersen, who studies the impact of meteorites through photography. Van der Loo also represents foreign artists, including UK-born and Munich-based Tim Bennett.

Kunstraum is an association created in 1973 as a privately subsidized not-for-profit art club. Around 300 people from all sectors of the Munich art world finance this venue. In 1996, the gallery moved to the city center. Voluntary curators regularly choose talented artists to exhibit their work in the space; as a result, many local artists find sponsorship through Kunstraum.

Galerie Christine Mayer represents the Mahlergruppe Collective alongside young but high-caliber German artists such as Franka Kaßner. This up-and-coming work, presented in conjunction with internationally-established artists such as Dan Graham creates a diverse blend of artistic viewpoints. The artists represented and exhibited by the gallery work in a wide range of mediums. Artists that exhibit or take residence here work very closely with the gallery to unite their work with the space, creating a fluid relationship between the artist and curator.
