fruehsorge contemporary drawings was founded by art historian and art critic Jan-Philipp Fruehsorge in 2003 as the only gallery in Germany which exclusively focuses on the presentation and promotion of this particular medium. Since 2006 we have been located in the major gallery area in Heidestrasse in Berlin, next to the contemporary art museum Hamburger Bahnhof.

The gallery functions as a significant platform for the presentation of contemporary drawing and hereby provides a vibrant forum for reflecting on this specific field: we are involved in numerous projects, including collaborations with academic research and conferences, which continues to result in the publication of several catalogues.

Furthermore our network maintains permanent contact with the most important graphic collections in Germany, Europe and various international institutions, curators, collectors, critics and artists.

We could place works in the following institutions:

Berlinische Galerie
Hamburger Kunsthalle
Kupferstichkabinett Berlin
Pinakothek der Moderne, MĆ¼nchen
Staatsgalerie Stuttgart
Kunsthalle Bremen
Museum Gegenstandsfreier Kunst
Kupferstichkabinett Braunschweig
