Concrete, conceptual, constructive – stand for the art directions that have been represented by Galerie Klaus Braun, Stuttgart, for many years. Thereby the transitions are fluent. The common denominator of these different tendencies is the claim of the artists that they do not want their work to be more than what art is by nature, namely a well-balanced interplay of material, color and spatial concept based on a convincing idea.
Color and material as well as the working processes are not means to an end. The visible world is not imitated in an illusionistic way. It is rather about making something visible for which there are no words. Art does not represent here, but creates reality, which the viewers cannot avoid.
Art that pursues such goals has always been welcome in the gallery, whose beginnings date back to 1982, although the clear program only gradually took shape and has continued to develop dynamically to this day.
Klaus Braun began his exhibition activities in the rooms where he is based again today, in the Wohngalerie in Stuttgart’s city center. In the early years, the legendary art and staircase festivals took place there. The gallery was then known as art bohnenviertel. In the period between 1989 and 2005 the gallery had its rooms in Christophstraße 40 (Heusteigviertel), where also large, international exhibitions took place.
For many years, the gallery has participated in major international art fairs and regularly edits catalogs for the exhibitions.
