WENTRUP was founded in 2004 in Berlin‘s Prenzlauer Berg district. Conceived by Jan Wentrup as a space that reacted to the young, diverse, and international art scene of Berlin, for many artists of the gallery‘s early days it became their first commercial platform.\n\nTina Wentrup joined in 2006 with her experience and expertise in contemporary theatre and dance from Paris and Berlin. Since then the gallery opened up toward more installative and non-object related art practices.

\n\nOver time WENTRUP carefully broadened its portfolio, which includes artists of older generations who were influential precursors to current art practices while still producing work that is closely connected to the contemporary zeitgeist.\n\nWENTRUP‘s crossdisciplinary and transgenerational portfolio now comprises 19 artistic positions that redefine and expand definitions of painting and sculpture, photography, film, and video and find solutions across genres that are both intellectually exciting and aesthetically appealing.\n\nGallery artists have been included in a wide array of internationally renowned museum-exhibitions and were part of international exhibition venues such as the Venice Biennial and documenta. \n\nIn 2009, the gallery relocated in a former couture factory building from the 1950s in Berlin’s Kreuzberg district.\n\nIn its 15th year, WENTRUP moved to a listed brick building, constructed in 1928 in the style of New Objectivity in Berlin´s Charlottenburg district; the space was formerly occupied by the Deutsche Post. The German designer Sebastian Herkner was responsible for the design of the gallery’s new space
