Since 2012, the Affenfaust Galerie has offered young and established artists a forum for contemporary art.
Her exhibition program ranges from various positions in painting, drawing, and sculpture to room installations, performances, and video works. The curatorial understanding of the two gallery owners Frederik Schäfer and Marcus Schild is based on a consistent openness for new forms of expression. Thus, different formats and projects are repeatedly realized, some of which take place in public space or outside Hamburg.

In addition to a presentation platform for currently relevant art, the Affenfaust Galerie therefore sees itself as a place of networking: the 'Affenfaust', a particularly nested sailor's knot that is used in merchant shipping to weigh down the sweatline when the ships moor, metaphorically stands for a creative knotting of art and culture with a view to the gallery.
