Juxtapoz Magazine - Adrian Ghenie Opens Plan B's New Berlin Space

Galeria Plan B is pleased to announce the fifth solo exhibition of Adrian Ghenie (b. 1977) and the first to open the new Berlin gallery space at Strausberger Platz 1.

After more than ten years on Potsdamer Straße, Galeria Plan B moves to one of the iconic towers on Strausberger Platz, also known as Haus Berlin. Based in the German capital since 2008, the gallery takes a leap forward and expands with new exhibition and office spaces spread across the ground and first floor of the 14-storey building.

Designed by the chief architect of East Berlin Hermann Henselmann and built during 1953-1956, Haus Berlin together with Haus des Kindes form the entrance to the Magistrale. The architectural complex, starting in Strausberger Platz and stretching down all along Karl-Marx-Allee, is on its way to become a UNESCO World Heritage-listed monument. Galeria Plan B resettles in close proximity to emblematic sites such as Kino International, Cafe Moskau, or Babette and joins the galleries Capitain Petzel and Peres Projects in breathing new life into the culturally acclaimed neighborhood. Adrian Ghenie will inaugurate the new space with a presentation of his most recent paintings. With this exhibition, Plan B celebrates Ghenie’s growth in the city, which is also home to the artist’s studio.
