The König Büro Gallery, founded in 2020 by Susanne König, is dedicated to young Swiss contemporary art. It represents emerging positions in national art; in the rooms of a former Zurich laundry, it presents regular solo exhibitions.
In terms of media, the program includes painting, drawing and photography as well as sculpture, installation and video. The focus is on oeuvres of formal independence, personal authenticity, and contemporary relevance - the gallery promotes artists who negotiate aesthetic concepts as well as social identities and emancipatory movements with intensity.
Originally conceived as an exhibition management and art consulting company, König Büro has been managing art productions since 2013. Site-specific projects and hanging concepts are part of the expertise: for private individuals and companies as well as in cooperation with interior designers.
Susanne König has managed her company (König Büro) since its foundation. She is also responsible for the art projects in the new building of the University Children's Hospital Zurich by Herzog & de Meuron. After working for the Zentrum Paul Klee, the Kunsthaus Zürich and Pro Helvetia Johannesburg, she became involved as Chairperson for Visual Arts and Performance in the Aargau Board of Trustees and as a guest lecturer at the Zurich University of the Arts in the field of Creative Economies. She earned a Bachelor Fine Arts in Lucerne and a Master Curatorial Studies in Zurich, and completed an Executive MBA in General Management at the University of St.Gallen.
