The emphasis of the gallery's program is to represent a wide range of artists, who address the geopolitics of the Balkans, the Middle East, Italy, Germany and eventually new territories in a transcultural perspective. Pierre Andre Podbielski established Podbielski Contemporary in January 2011 in the heart of Berlin, Mitte. The opening show “Moving Worlds” featured Yael Bartana, Adrian Paci, Paola Yacoub, Lidwien van de Ven and Danica Dakic and was introduced by an essay by Griselda Pollock. The show was a strong declaration of intent: Podbielski Contemporary's main focus is to document political and geopolitical issues seen from an artistic perspective. From its opening show Moving Worlds to the closing show Bye Bye Berlin! in February 2018, the gallery has featured five shows a year and participated in numerous international fairs: (MIA Image Fair Milan, London Art, Artissima, MIA Singapore, Art Paris, Context Art Miami, Photo London). Podbielski Contemporary has now moved back to Milan, it’s home town, to new premises located in the elegant centro storico and will open to the public end of May 2018. The gallery seeks to promote, besides exhibitions, catalogues designed and published for each show and to address its work to international private and museum collections. Its founder strongly believes that a gallery, besides representing artists and promoting their works in the optimal way, should serve as a platform for the exchange of ideas about art and culture.
