Christian Boltanski, Große Hamburger Straße

On 21 September 2013, Kewenig is opening its new Berlin location with a Christian Boltanski show. After more than 25 years in the Rhineland, the gallery is moving into the Palais Happe on the southern part of the Spree Island. The townhouse from 1688 was especially renovated for this purpose in conformity with heritage standards. The gallery will house a part of Boltanski's artistic archive which to date was located only in Paris; it will be open to scholarly researchers.
