Jochen Hempel Gallery is the continuation of the Dogenhaus Gallery, which was founded in 1992 by its proprietor/director Jochen Hempel. From 2012 to 2018 Jochen Hempel runned a gallery space at Lindenstrasse, Berlin (DE).
Jochen Hempels longstanding collaborations with artists and collectors provide an excellent footing for Jochen Hempel Gallery. Based in the well known gallery building at Lindenstrasse 35, Berlin the gallery was at a very center where contemporary art is presentet and mediated. The gallery was set over 3,800 square feet and included a two main exhibition spaces as well as a smaller project room. Due to the versatility and scale of the space, Jochen Hempel Gallery was able to fulfil its commitment of offering its artists and their work a museum-quality showcase.
The Leipzig gallery space is based in the Leipzig Baumwollspinnerei, a former industrial site that has developed into a vibrant location where contemporary art is produced and presented.
Situated in the old steam engine hall, the gallery offers a unique exhibition space with flexible walls. The gallery is set over 4,000 square feet and includes a main exhibition space with a height of about 75 feet.
Jochen Hempel Gallery represents internationally artists of the younger generation including Carsten Fock, Julius Popp, and Oliver Kossack, major mid career artists including Esko Männikkö and Ulf Puder as well as established artists of international repute such as Beat Streuli and Stephan Balkenhol. All these artists have exhibited at major museum shows during the last 3 years. In 2009, Jochen Hempel was responsible for realising the show Carte Blanche No. 4 at the Leipzig Museum of Contemporary Art (GfZK), the first museum exhibition of U.S. artist Mark Lombardi in Germany.
