Who is Axel Obiger? Axel Obiger is a fictitious, perfect gallerist from Austria. The project-space “Axel Obiger” functions as an artwork itself, questioning role models and mechanisms of the art system. The topic of the fictitious gallerist is taken up regularly: On the Preview artfair in 2009 visitors could listen to his voice in an radio-interview, in 2011 we showed artists from his watchlist and in 2015 we showcase his private collection. Located in central Berlin, we present 11 exhibitions per year in different formats: Dialogue shows of one member and one guest artist, topical group shows and satellite shows realised by invited curators. Alke Brinkmann, Harriet Groß, Katrin Hoffert, Nana Kreft, Gabriele Künne, Josina von der Linden, Katharina Moessinger, Oliver Möst, Enrico Niemann, Susanne Ring, Maja Rohwetter are Axel Obiger.
