Contemporary art meets World Heritage

AOA;87 is a contemporary art gallery founded in the heart of Bamberg 2020. In changing solo and group exhibitions we show emerging and established contemporary artists to blue chips, including: Alex Katz, Cornelia Schleime, Giuseppe Veneziano, Heiner Meyer, Holger Schmidhuber, Imi Knoebel, XOOOOX, and many more.

The palindrome AOA stands for the sequence Alpha Omega Alpha and symbolizes new beginnings, metamorphosis and return. Rooted in popular culture, the gallery conveys urban culture in world heritage, thus softening the dichotomy of urban and rural life. AOA;87 expands Bamberg’s art scene with a progressively oriented exhibition space.

GALERIST

Angela Kohlrusch initially studied industrial engineering in Berlin after graduating from high school and joined PricewaterhouseCoopers after the usual industrial internships. She then ran a subsidiary of the family-run group of companies for three years. Kohlrusch, who comes from a family of collectors, was enthusiastic about art from an early age. In 2019 she took an educational trip to New York at Sotheby’s Institute of Art. She began to network in the art world and in 2020 decided to open a gallery for contemporary art in her adopted home, the World Heritage Bamberg.
