Berlin based gallerist Volker Diehl talks about the curated solo presentation of Olga Chernysheva at his booth during the fair in 2014 and his interest in Russian art.
DIEHL is focused on contemporary art with international relevance. The programme includes the the internationally acclaimed Chinese born artist Zhang Huan (New York), the renowned Spanish sculptor Jaume Plensa (Barcelona), and the Russian groups Blue Noses and AES+F (Moscow). Next to these international positions the programme is balanced and rooted by German artists such as the painters Herbert Volkmann, Martin Assig and Martin Borowski as well as the photographers Thomas Florschuetz and Frauke Eigen.
In 2008, GALERIE VOLKER DIEHL moved into a new 400 m2 venue in a newly renovated gallery building on Lindenstraße in Berlin-Kreuzberg. In addition, DIEHL + GALLERY ONE opened in Moscow in april 2008, with its inaugural show Like Truth by Jenny Holzer. It was then followed by a group show of Russian political art from the 80‘s (Sots Art), Glasnost/Perestroika, and a recent solo show of Wim Delvoye‘s New Works. Volker Diehl is the first Western gallerist to open a gallery space in Moscow.
In autumn 2011, GALERIE VOLKER DIEHL changed to DIEHL, Berlin Moskau and opened the new gallery space in Niebuhrstrasse 2, 10629 Berlin / Charlottenburg
