Lena and Johann König are pleased to announce that long-standing employee and current Senior Director, Laura Attanasio, becomes Partner of the gallery.

After studying art history at the Free University of Berlin (BA), Attanasio completed a Master of Science in Management at the Graduate Business School, University College Dublin. Various positions followed, including at the Phillips de Pury branch in Berlin, and at Galerie Gmurzynska in Zurich.

Attanasio joined the KÖNIG GALERIE team in 2014, initially as an artist liaison, and soon thereafter, rising to the position of Director. She has worked closely with gallery artists such as Alicja Kwade, Claudia Comte, and Katharina Grosse. Since February 2019, she holds the title Senior Director and will become the first Partner of the gallery in June 2022.
“I am very much looking forward to growing with this new challenge. The gallery has had a great shaping influence on my professional and personal development, and it makes me proud to now be able to take on even more responsibility. As before, I will continue to be committed to building a strong bond between our artists, collectors, and institutions.” Laura Attanasio
