Galerie Kornfeld was founded in 2011 by Alfred Kornfeld and his fellow partners Anne Langmann and Mamuka Bliadze. The trio, who started over ten years ago with international exhibitions in various places, now continues their program in fixed premises in West Berlin.
The program of Galerie Kornfeld ranges from young contemporary positions to pioneering under-recognised artists of the avant-garde and beyond. Representing a combination of emerging and established artists and estates, the gallery is committed to contributing to a contemporary discourse. Galerie Kornfeld has successfully represented rediscovery artists such as Natela Iankoshvili and Elvira Bach both in Berlin and internationally through fair participations such as Frieze New York. Furthermore the gallery has facilitated public commissions for many of its artists notably both an 8.5 meter kinetic sculpture in Vietnam and 18m kinetic sculpture in Wuxi, China both inaugurated in 2019 by Georgian artist Tamara Kvesitadze. The gallery has collaborated with curators such as Jane Neal, Leiko Ikemura, Shulamit Bruckstein, Ralf Hanselle and others.
In 2014 in addition to the gallery the project space 68projects was founded. Across the road from the gallery at Fasanenstrasse 68, the project space is dedicated to a diverse curatorial exhibition program and offers subsidised residencies for emerging international artists (hosting artists such as Farshad Farzankia, Tom Anholt, William Bradley, Jennifer Packer, Yevgeniya Baras and more) throughout the year in collaboration with international and regional curators (including Katharina Pilz, Adrianne Rubenstein, Omar López-Chahoud and others).
