Société is a Berlin-based gallery with an international profile—its core operations lying in Europe, the United States, and Asia. The gallery’s exhibitions, publications, and boundary-pushing initiatives have established a vital dialogue among artists working internationally.
Société focuses on establishing long-term, symbiotic relationships with its gallery artists, many of whom had their first solo exhibition with the gallery. Paramount to the structure of the gallery’s program and the format of its projects is an artist-led approach that responds to the ever-evolving conditions of artistic research and production—at times even pushing beyond traditional exhibition formats.
Although differing in media and approach, Société’s artists address the relationship between cultural production and consumption, the circulation of information, identity, and cultural history in an era highly mediated by technology.
The gallery's publishing initiative Edition Société, has worked with accomplished graphic designers on a number of acclaimed artist's books, including Kaspar Müller's Schätze der Erinnerung, which was awarded the 2016 Prize for the Most Beautiful Swiss Books, and Trisha Baga's The Great Pam. The gallery has additionally produced 12" records with several contemporary musicians.
Société has exhibited at Art Basel / Art Basel Miami Beach / Art Basel Hong Kong / Frieze London / Frieze New York / Frieze LA / Independent New York / Independent Brussels / Art Cologne / Art Brussels / Gallery Weekend Berlin / and Art Berlin among other locations.
