« “Art is sacred“
effectively means nothing more than this:
the artist is an idiot, just let him talk. »
Why is there no Berlin School?
Berlin is different from Leipzig: The city has no Neo Rauch but it has a myth.
According to the City Council 20,000 professional artists lived here in 2011. Just as during the first Berlin Hype in the 1920’s the city attracts artists from all over the world. Unlike in business orientated New York, the atmosphere here ranges from carefree spontaneity and improvisation to aimlessness or even precarity. Berlin is still rude, if not necessarily as remorseless as Alfred Döblin describes in his 1929 novel Berlin Alexanderplatz.
In order to make the ambivalent love for our city perceptible here in Copenhagen we have painted the Galleri Benoni black. Black like a run-down night club, black like the collector’s limousines during the Berlin Gallery Weekend. Today’s special: Some prime cuts from the shark tank of Berlin’s young contemporary art scene.

Galleri Benoni is a gallery with an ambitious yet relaxed atmosphere.
We aim to present contemporary artists working within a wide range of mediums.
We seek out art that excels in 4 parameters: Artistic skill, process, theme based approach and C.V. We will exhibit both Danish and international artists. We love many art genres, and will not confine the gallery space to one art form.
Instead we will welcome everything from underground Street Art, to a more pleasing aesthetic, and even show varying types of minimalism. We aim to uphold meaning, and a constant red thread, despite our diverse choice of Shows/exhibitions.
We will highlight work that equally emphazize skill & process. The works you can expect to see in our gallery aims to amuse, and engange viewers on a sentient emotional and inspirational level.
We want to include, rather than exclude. We welcome you to visit Galleri Benoni.
If you are an artist you are welcome to send us information about your work.
Although we cannot promise to answer every inquiry due to an overwhelming interest.
