A platform and institution rooted in time, contemporary art with a radical edge: such could be the definition of Galerie Römerapotheke. The gallery celebrates the contemporary and yet yields at and promotes lasting quality. Roemerapotheke celebrates the avantgarde – by not borrowing too heavily from elements of its ambient reality, which itself borrows elements from art in order to convert them into simple decoration, and by avoiding the risk of art to be sucked into a whirlwind race at the end of which it would be everywhere/nowhere. We believe in message, we promote senses, opinions, philosophies, comments and statements. Founded in 2003, Römerapotheke started in the center of the red light district, in a building that used to be a pharmacy (thus –apotheke). After seven intense and successful years, Roemerapotheke believed it would be change for a change. Römerapotheke takes over the rooms of Zurich legend Andy Jllien and is now located at Rämistrasse 18 (between restaurant Kronenhalle and Kunsthaus).
The Gallery can be rented for your personal occasion. Please contact the gallery for further informations.
