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 Mayfair, the London gallery operated as a public exhibition space from 2019 until 2022. In October 2022, BASTIAN relocated to Soho, opening an office and private showroom on Berwick Street, which is open by appointment. The gallery presented solo exhibitions of Andy Warhol, Cy Twombly, Joseph Beuys, Pablo Picasso and Sonia Delaunay amongst others.
