gkx mediaHOUSE

We are here to understand how things were before, how they are now and how they might be in the future at least we try ;)

Sharing Happiness

Social, ecological and economic framework conditions are being redefined – this also requires a different form of communication. Collaboration is at the heart of g—kx. We work with our network of players from the world of art, design, philosophy, science and business. We bring ideas with a positive impact to life and accompany brands and institutions through necessary change processes.

What happened so far: Oliver and Mick are two of the three founders of Studio Orel Communication Dept. where they worked as managing directors from 2015-2020. During their time at Studio Orel they were awarded "ADC Rookie Agency of the Year 2018" and won a silver nail for their work with Porsche. In 2017, they founded Galerie Kernweine Foto und Raum. Galerie Kernweine is a physical and digital platform for visual media and contemporary photography. Exhibition projects challenge classical approaches and expand established formats. Workshops and different event formats on the topics of photography and visual media take place on an alternating basis. Galerie Kernweine, also known as g—k, expanded at the end of 2020 and is now the first office of g—kx mediaHOUSE based in Stuttgart with the focus on consultancy, creation and communication.
