The work of Paul Gondry is set in a fictional dark age brought on by a dying civilization stricken by gluttony and indulgence. His paintings and video work describe the inner worlds of characters who know little more than petulance and decay. They ask if the impulse towards escapism is the symptom or the contagion, the cure or the anesthetic.

KAYA is Kerstin Brätsch and Debo Eilers. Both artists consider their own practices – painting and sculpture – to be the subject matter and base material of a conceptual and multidisciplinary work. KAYA is interested in continual processes of displacement, variation and reproduction through appropriations of digital imaging.

Deborah Schamoni is a contemporary art gallery founded in March 2013 and based in Munich, Germany. From the beginning, the gallery has focused on works by upcoming international artists and followed a decidedly curatorial approach in their presentation.

VARIOUS OTHERS initiates cooperative and international art projects in galleries, off spaces and museums in Munich. While serving as a content-driven forum for contemporary art that takes place each year in September, their mission is to intensify exchange and dialogue between the art scene in Munich and international partners, guests and media.
