Gallery Information

  • Aurel Scheibler Owner

Aurel Scheibler opened in Cologne in April 1991 and moved to Berlin in 2006, with a location in Charlottenburg and later in Kreuzberg. In summer 2012 the gallery moved to Schöneberger Ufer in the Tiergarten area, where it is set in a historical building created in 1911 for the Berlin Association of Female Artists, which also housed the galleries of Ferdinand Möller and the brothers Nierendorf in the 1920/30’s

Over the years, Aurel Scheibler has established a singularly individual presence, interlacing a gallery program of international contemporary with historically defined art. The convergence of works by emerging, and established artists – from this century as well as previous ones – in congruous and in-depth exhibitions has become one of the gallery’s main features. Aurel Scheibler’s exhibition activity – both in Berlin and at international art fairs is complemented by private sales of major works to museums and collections worldwide. Besides a selected group of international contemporary artists, the gallery also works with the estates of E.W. Nay, Alice Neel, Öyvind Fahlström and Norbert Kricke.
