ABOUT THE GALLERY
With exhibition spaces in Berlin and London, BASTIAN has an international reputation for presenting remarkable modern, post-war and contemporary works of art in solo exhibitions and curated group shows. 20th Century artists such as Pablo Picasso and Jean Dubuffet, as well as German and American post-war artists including Joseph Beuys, Anselm Kiefer, Cy Twombly, Robert Rauschenberg and Andy Warhol, form the core of the exhibition program.
BASTIAN also represents a number of leading international contemporary artists including Anselm Kiefer, Ulrich Erben, Wim Wenders and Emma Stibbon in Germany.
The gallery publishes numerous exhibition catalogues, artist monographs and catalogues raisonnés. You will find a selection of these publications in our shop. In addition, exhibitions and showrooms are presented in the gallery’s online viewing rooms.
BASTIAN participates in a number of selected international art fairs, notably Frieze Masters, MASTERPIECE London, Taipei Dangdai, Art Cologne and Art Düsseldorf. Established by Céline and Heiner Bastian in 1989, the gallery has been directed by Aeneas Bastian since 2016.
From 2007 until 2019 BASTIAN presented exhibitions dedicated to modern and contemporary art in a gallery building facing Museum Island. At the beginning of 2019, the Bastian family gifted their building ‚Am Kupfergraben‘ to the State Museums of Berlin, who established an art education center in the space. In November 2021, the gallery moved to its present location in Berlin Dahlem, a gallery building designed by John Pawson.
Located in the heart of Mayfair, the London gallery opened in 2019. Since its opening the gallery has presented solo exhibitions of Andy Warhol, Cy Twombly, Joseph Beuys, Pablo Picasso and Sonia Delaunay amongst others.
