THE ARTIST WILL BE PRESENT

A solo exhibition by photographer Juergen Teller will form the prelude of KÖNIG TOKIO. Titled Heimweh, the show explores his own fairy tales and questions German clichés and traditions. Many of the works are shown in public for the first time. Set up as an interplay between large-scale formats and smaller pictures, the exhibition will run from November 9th until January 2020.

Berlin-based KÖNIG GALERIE brings a 3000 sqft. exhibition space for contemporary artists to Tokyo at the MCM GINZA HAUS I, the MCM‘s Japanese flagship concept store. With a focus on show- casing a roster of key influential German, Austrian and Swiss artists in Japan, the temporary gallery KÖNIG TOKIO will run multiple exhibitions starting from November 2019 through to December 2020. Tatsuya Yamasaki was appointed as Sales Director Japan.
