misa.art is launching in parallel to the opening of IRL art fair MISA #3 on Tuesday, August 10th, 2021.

misa.art will offer a carefully curated selection of art from the primary and secondary market. It claims to be the only online marketplace that brings emerging and established artists together and offers a range of traditional and digital art. Ultra Contemporary artists will be presented alongside the classics of art history from the past 70 years. The selection of new discoveries and canonical works will be constantly expanded, and NFTs and editions will be dropped regularly.

To both strengthen trust in the offers on misa.art and enable a reliable and objective assessment based on data, rankings by ArtFacts are included on the artists’ pages. ArtFacts creates transparency in the art world with the largest existing curatorial art database, which includes more than 700,000 artists who are tracked by more than 45,000 institutions worldwide. The ArtFacts Artist Ranking measures the position of artists in the art world based on their exhibition history. When an artist participates in an exhibition, ArtFacts collects data in order to determine how that show affects the artist’s ranking.

misa.art also utilizes Limna’s machine learning engine, which analyzes millions of art world data points in seconds and provides instant price validation and insights. Limna is the world’s first AI-powered art advisor, available as a mobile app on iOS devices. By comparing the valuation with the offer price, a con dent decision based on meaningful data can be made when buying art.

MISA is an art market in the KÖNIG GALERIE in Berlin that presents works from the primary and secondary market. At the beginning of 2021, Lena Winter took over the management of MISA. With her many years of in-depth experience in the auction market, most recently as Head of Contemporary Art at Ketterer in Munich, she has had a lasting impact on the art market.

“I want to make art accessible to everyone, which is why MISA o ers a multi-faceted program. Growing up in an artistic environment, I was able to train my eye from an early age. Later, I was able to develop it further through my professional activity as an auctioneer in the secondary market. When choosing works for MISA and misa.art, I always ask myself: was the work in question avant-garde at the time? Were the artists co-founders of a movement? Have the artists shaped the canon of their time? Can recently rediscovered artists lead the way for the current generation of young artists?”

250 works of art by more than 200 artists will be presented in thematic booths that provide the art- historical context for the works on offer. In order to convey knowledge to connoisseurs and beginners alike, the works, which cover 70 years of art history, will be arranged in 13 booths according to movements, artist groups, style, zeitgeist and mood and contrasted with one another. These include booths on such topics as Junge Wilde and City-Country-River, Pop Art and Color, Post War and Post Internet, East German Art and African Art, photography and NFTs.

The program consists of a diverse selection of emerging and established artists of both national and international repute, as well as digital and traditional art. Among those represented will include: Albert Oehlen, Rosemarie Trockel, Günter Fruhtrunk, Robert Longo and Martin Kippenberger and Ultra Contemporary Artists such as Johanna Dumet, Denise Rudolf Frank and Fabian Warnsing.

From August 10th to 22nd, MISA will be accompanied by an extensive supporting program of offline and online. There will be panels, talks, performances, book presentations, and live streams. The program continues throughout the year on misa.art and on social media (@misa.artmarket).

About the MISA
The MESSE IN ST. AGNES took place for the first time in June 2020 at KÖNIG GALERIE Berlin-Kruezberg. When international art fairs were cancelled in spring 2020 in the wake of the corona pandemic, Johann König offered artists, collectors, and gallery owners a platform for the sale of art. A diverse selection of works from the primary and secondary market was shown within the large space of the gallery (more than 300m2). In September 2020, on the occasion of the Berlin Gallery Weekend and the Berlin Art Week, the second edition of MISA took place. Each event attracted more than 3000 visitors.
