Galleri Heike Arndt DK was founded in 1989 in Lolland, Denmark, by the German-born artist, gallery owner and cosmopolitan Heike Arndt. Since 1989 she runs the gallery and related activities with great passion and success. In 2008, Galleri Heike Arndt DK Berlin opened in the old East German district of Berlin-Friedrichshain, an area where alternative and authentic Berlin is thriving. In 2016, after 10 years of hard work, Heike Arndt established Artlab Kettinge – a fantastic artist house. In 2019, a graphic workshop in Kettinge was refurbished.
Both galleries in Berlin (DE) and Kettinge (DK), in addition to its own artist studios on Lolland (DK), are owned and primarily managed by Heike Arndt. A significant note is that these galleries are run on a string of non-for-profit activities such as cultural events, workshops and meetups. This inclusive business strategy is an excellent framework for exhibitions as well as projects, workshops, research and professional growth in an international context. And has proven to be a strength to differentiate itself from more classical and commercial galleries.
The gallery defines itself as “klein aber fein” (small but fine). Here you will find contemporary art with a focus on painting, sculpture, ceramics, drawing, graphics and other media such as street and digital art. A strong example of our offering is our graphics department, which consists of a large selection of works by international artists. We have chosen to support an active and dynamic dialogue between the Nordic and German art scenes in Berlin, often done in collaboration with various galleries, museums and other cultural institutions. Through the years as our partnerships grow stronger, we are proud to have a broad selection of international contemporary art in our collection.
