Gallery Profile

Gallery Pabst has made a name for itself in Munich and Vienna, with more than 120 exhibitions since 1974. Thirty exhibition catalogues and publications offer a cross-section of our gallery's history, which spans a spectrum ranging from Jugendstil, through the avant-garde movements of the 1920s, to the works of contemporary artists. The focal points are German and Austrian art of the 20th century: avant-garde German Expressionism of the 1920s, Viennese Kineticism from 1920 to 1950, Russian avant-garde books from 1910 to 1930, the Viennese Secession from 1897 to 1914, and contemporary art and photography.

"The gallery's work consists of establishing contexts in the broadest sense. By bringing pictures to the public, it unites art with commerce.
Art arises from the feeling of imperfection. One's own human inadequacies spur one's yearning for fulfillment and perfection: that's why a person becomes creative. For many people, art is a sensual and cognitive pleasure. But art is essentially a reflection of its times. Through playful experimentation, art has the ability to suggest solutions. In the form of its own aesthetic, it turns the beholder's attention toward itself so that it can lead the beholder toward its contents. Our feelings and thoughts are influenced by our becoming aware of humanity's grand issues and the approaches toward solving them. This bears fruit in the life of each individual and in society at large."
