For all those who always wanted to feel the spirit of Gugging in the heart of Vienna – now the time has finally come! After two beautiful collaborations with Marco & Ulli Simonis in 2016 and 2019, the time is ripe to build a bridge from Gugging to the provincial capital to create a very special place of encounter & exchange and to start a wonderful partnership.

What could be better than experiencing the exciting, raw, unadulterated art of the Gugging Artists and being inspired in the cozy atmosphere of a legendary meeting place for gourmets. In our galerie gugging vienna with Marco Simonis in the Dominikanerbastei 10 in the middle of Vienna’s city centre, you can browse through art books, have a lively conversation while enjoying the best culinary delights, or simply enjoy the moment with coffee in hand in this oasis of well-being. As an always service-oriented team, it is our special concern to offer our national, but also international guests the possibility to visit us more spontaneously and to experience the art of the Gugging Artists and their Art Brut colleagues within reach.

Nina Katschnig sums it up:

“I am happy to be able to offer our existing customers even more service in our “Gallery of Senses” and at the same time to make new customers aware of the wonderful works of the Gugging Artists.” 

Marco Simonis is also on fire for the new collaboration, saying:

“My wife and I have been enthusiastic fans of the galerie gugging and its very special artists for 25 years. From the very beginning we were fascinated by the idea of the gallery and the special history of Art Brut: Not only is the work of artists from Gugging made more visible here, but in this way previously unknown art is also promoted. We are extremely pleased that the “Gallery of Senses” will now have a permanent place in our “Marketplace of Senses” and warmly welcome the galerie gugging to its first location in the centre of Vienna at Marco Simonis Bastei10 and are thrilled about this “sensual” partnership.”

Thus, in the future there will be two hotspots of the Art Brut scene in Austria.

In addition, our galerie gugging Signature Dishes in a salty as well sweet version await you, which have been created especially for our Gallery of Senses by Marco & Ulli Simonis.
