The gallery's origins can be traced back to Stuttgart in 1974 when Max Hetzler opened the Hetzler + Keller gallery, initially focusing on artists from the Rhineland and Stuttgart. In the subsequent years, Galerie Max Hetzler relocated multiple times, occupying various premises simultaneously or successively. As the gallery's reputation grew, Hetzler began to bring European and international artists to Stuttgart, including notable figures such as Donald Judd, Richard Long, and representatives of the Arte Povera movement.
