Galerie Capitain Petzel, Art Galleries, Berlin

Housed in a dramatic, Soviet-era Modernist block at the top of the Frankfurter Allee in former East Berlin, Capitain Petzel is a light, bright and airy space that, in a former life, was used to showcase ideologically-friendly art during the DDR era. Today, thanks to Cologne gallerist Gisela Capitain and her partner Friedrich Petzel, the programme takes in an international range of contemporary artists including John Stezaker, Wade Guyton, Martin Kippenburger and Sarah Morris. Even if none of these names draw you, a visit to Petzel’s premises is an architectural experience in itself.
