Back in 2007, when Sebastian Klemm and Silvia Bonsiepe founded Klemm’s, Mitte’s Brunnenstrasse was one of the hottest parts of town for your socially-agile, well-heeled urban warrior to deploy their finely-tuned art chops. But in Berlin as elsewhere, fashionable districts morph and evolve with cruel disregard for those left gasping in their wake and so it was in Brunnenstrasse. Klemm’s, however, persevered for a few more years before shifting southwards to Kreuzberg’s Prinzessinnenstrasse this year with a packed programme of offbeat, original and always worthwhile shows from photographers, painters, installation artists and nutters including Viktoria Binschtok, Peggy Buth, Ulrich Gebert, Gwenneth Boelens, Sven Johne, Falk Haberkorn, Alexej Meschtschanow and Adrian Sauer. A recent show of paintings by Bernard Piffaretti demonstrated the gallery’s ongoing commitment to showing art of rare and weirdly beautiful quality. Plus, it is also much-loved amongst the cognoscenti for hosting some of the best opening-night parties in town.
