BASTIAN Gallery's Evolution in Berlin and London
From 2007 to 2019, BASTIAN held exhibitions dedicated to modern and contemporary art in a gallery building facing Museum Island. In early 2019, the Bastian family gifted their building, "Am Kupfergraben," to the State Museums of Berlin, which transformed it into an art education center. In November 2021, the gallery relocated to its present location in Berlin Dahlem.
Situated in Mayfair, the London gallery served as a public exhibition space from 2019 to 2022. In October 2022, BASTIAN moved to Soho, establishing an office and private showroom on Berwick Street, open by appointment. The gallery presented solo exhibitions featuring artists like Andy Warhol, Cy Twombly, Joseph Beuys, Pablo Picasso, Sonia Delaunay, and more.
