Officially established in 2009, Krome Gallery began in 2008 as a series of artist projects with a special focus on the intersections of contemporary art and architecture. Michael Krome, former co-owner of the gallery Schipper & Krome, opened his own venture in a 200 square meter space housed in a 1950s "Stalinbau," one of the architectural monuments on historic Karl-Marx-Allee. Besides mounting rotating in-house exhibitions, Krome Gallery also organizes public interventions by its artists and site-specific outdoor projects, such as Michael Hakimi's 2008 rooftop installation, Resonance, that further the gallery's inter-disciplinarian platform. Past artists exhibited by Krome Gallery include acclaimed graphic designer Markus Weisbeck and Portuguese artist Carlos Bunga, whose architectural, conceptual works have been shown at the New Museum in New York and in Manifesta 5 (2004). Exhibitions by Dave Hullfish Bailey, KMA group show and Amie Siegel followed.
