DNA, founded in 2001, is dedicated to promoting contemporary art. It focuses primarily on international artists. The program accommodates a wide range of artistic media (painting, sculpture, video, installation and drawing), presented via innovative, interactive, interdisciplinary and multimedia projects.
DNA has an international character, collaborating regularly with numerous galleries and institutions outside Germany. The DNA‘s objective is to provide a stage for contemporary art and stimulate the debate that surrounds it. It aims to present and foster new horizons in art, which in turn require experimental forms of exhibiting, conveying and communicating. Prior to running a commercial gallery, the managing director Johann Nowak has been working as an independent curator, realizing numerous international projects, such as The Festival of Vision, Berlin – Hongkong in collaboration with Haus der Kulturen der Welt Berlin (2000), INSIDEOUT, Boros- Bunker Berlin (2002) and Photo Macau (2018).
DNA participated in the most important international art fairs. Since 2013, this engagement has ceased and the gallery is working on new market concepts.

For the first time in this type of work by the artist, the images are free from the physical constraints of screens and spread throughout the space in multiple sequences of abstract drawings, which appear as spectral and ghostly presences, taking us to a mysterious preindustrial and post-apocalyptical realm.
