Gallery Wittenbrink FÜNF HÖFE
Gallery Wittenbrink has been one of the established galleries in the Bavarian capital since 1984 and shows renowned national and international contemporary art. The main premises are located in the Kunstareal Munich at Türkenstraße 16, while its branch at a prominent location in the CityQuartier FÜNF HÖFE opened in 2003. While the concept of individual presentations lasting several months is usual for galleries in the main building, gallery Wittenbrink shows young paintings, sculptures and photography by various artists and genres in its showroom at FÜNF HÖFE on a roughly weekly basis.
