We are an art gallery based in Frankfurt/Main (Germany). Working with an international roster of contemporary artists, our program intentionally prioritizes Africa and her diasporas as well as African-American positions, with the goal of drawing attention to contextual specificity in and through art – in content, medium and genre.
