About the Gallery
Christine König Galerie was founded in 1989 in Vienna. The gallery represents a variety of internationally recognized artists and works simultaneously with a decidedly younger generation of upcoming artists. The gallery’s program and its selection of the artists reflects the central concerns of Christine König: Politics and activism, feminism, literature, as well as post-conceptual approaches.
Together with three other galleries, Christine König changed its location to Schleifmühlgasse in 1999. Along with Eschenbachgasse and Seilerstätte, Schleifmühlgasse has become one of the central sites for contemporary art in Vienna. The gallery is located in the immediate vicinity of the Secession, Kunsthalle Karlsplatz, Wien Museum, Museumsquartier and Naschmarkt.
