For over forty years Galerie Tanit has played an important role in introducing American artists to German audiences and beyond. Galerie Tanit was founded by Naila Kettaneh-Kunigk and Stefan Kunigk in Munich in 1972. Walther Mollier became partner in 1981. After several moves the current exhibition space is located at Maximilanstrasse 45. Initial solo shows included Robert Rauschenberg (1975), Michael Heizer (1976) and Jasper Johns (1977). Early photography shows featured Bernd and Hilla Becher’s Industrial Buildings (1977) and Hamish Fulton’s Roads and Paths (1979).
