In the viennese art world there are women gallerists who are an inspiration. One of these women is Christine König. She's been in the gallery business since 25 years and since 1999 is located in the Schleifmühlgasse, one of my favorite streets in Vienna whose main attraction is a street filled with contemporary art galleries.
In 2017 she opened the project space KOENIG2 BY_ROBBYGREIF. Providing a special project space focusing on young and experimental positions. I had two good reasons to visit her room at the Parallel Art Fair this year. First because I am always interested in what the Koenig Gallery is showing and secondly because she is exhibiting an artist I know and admire Maruša Sagadin. Be sure to visit the fair and don't forget to go to room 3.01 at parallel Vienna 2020 to see the work of artists Marusa Sagadin and Thilo Jenssen.
