If you are biking along Mitte’s Charlottenstrasse – a rather dull stretch of street, parallel to Checkpoint Charlie on Friedrichstrasse – you will suddenly encounter a corner building with wraparound glass windows, containing anything from a teetering mass of knackered disco speakers to a single vase, immaculately spot-lit on a plinth.
Opened by New Yorker Thomas Schulte and Swiss-born Eric Franck in 1991, Galerie Thomas Schulte represents artists drawn from the more esoteric corners of contemporary European and international art, nevertheless, typically of museum-standard. Recent shows have seen New York pioneer of conceptualism Alice Aycock bring typically wry installations to Berlin whilst much of 2013 was taken up by ‘2013’, a series of long and short (some lasting merely hours) sequential exhibitions, loosely themed around abstracted ideas related to the year 1913, by Michael Müller.
