The solo exhibition Heimweh centers on the concept of homesickness, a re-evaluation of Teller’s German identity and his position as a European immigrant to the UK in the midst of the ongoing Brexit uncertainty. Set up as an interplay between large-scale formats and smaller pictures, the exhibition will run until 11 January, 2020. Many of the works are shown in public for the first time.
Global luxury brand MCM and Berlin-based gallery KÖNIG GALERIE joined forces to establish a 3000 square feet exhibition space for contemporary art at the MCM GINZA HAUS I, the brand’s Japanese flagship concept store. With a focus on showcasing a roster of key influential German, Austrian and Swiss artists in Japan, the temporary gallery KÖNIG TOKIO will run multiple exhibitions including internationally renowned artists such as Katharina Grosse, Alicja Kwade, Erwin Wurm and more.
The MCM Ginza HAUS I is MCM’s concept space celebrating the brand’s heritage of culture, craft and creativity. As an architectural landmark where art, fashion, culture converge and the experiential meet, it is the ideal venue for KÖNIG TOKIO.
