Fred Jahn founded his own gallery in Munich in 1978 after an apprenticeship in the newspaper and publishing sector, and from 1965, at Gallery Thomas in Munich. In 1969 he began working freelance at Gallery Heiner Friedrich and from 1970/71 became Friedrich’s partner in the Munich gallery. His program included contributions from German and American artists who were at the beginning of their careers at that time, such as Georg Baselitz , Per Kirkeby or Fred Sandback . However, he also kept his eye on the Munich scene, which he offered a platform to. Paintings and drawings on paper formed the focal point of his work although detours into the areas of sculpture, jewellery, ceramics or the non-European were welcomed.
His son Matthias Jahn managed the showroom at Baaderstraße 56 B since 2008 and primarily showed young artists related to Günther Förg. Förg taught at the Academy of Fine Arts, Munich where he had also studied. Matthias Jahn inherited the preference for painting and most of all for works on paper from his father; he continued this tradition creatively and with originality for the next generation. In the years following 2008, with a flair for new approaches and with sound aesthetic judgement, he gathered together artists into a new program that continually featured connections or responses to the achievements of the previous generation shown by Fred Jahn.
When a joint appearance of the galleries came about at Art Cologne in 2011, a conceptual and organisational foundation was laid for potential affiliation in the future. Gradually, the possible contours of a combined Gallery Jahn and Jahn were sketched and their team expanded to include Tim Geissler who contributed to the contemporary program. In the future five to six double exhibitions per year are planned in each gallery.
As well as maintaining a sense of continuity between the traditional and the new, and further pursuing the focus on painting and works on paper, surprising emphases are planned, such as Josef Albers’s works on paper or the sculptures of Michael Croissant that were shown in the past. As artists greatly appreciate this focus on works on paper, groups of work will be shown that are specifically tailored to Gallery Jahn and Jahn.
Dialogue with the artists will remain, as in the past, a central source of inspiration for gallery work.
