Galeria Plan B opened in 2005 in Cluj, Romania, initiated by Mihai Pop and Adrian Ghenie. It functions as a production and exhibition space for contemporary art. At the same time it is a research center focusing on Romanian art of the last 50 years and reveals works of remarkable artists who have not had any previous international exposure.
The name Galeria Plan B is a reference to the general situation of the insufficient public resources supporting art spaces in Romania and the constant need to find alternative solutions. The plan B strategy is animated by individual involvement, a different understanding of the institutional, and a coherent managerial policy.
In 2008 Plan B opened a permanent exhibition space in Berlin which is coordinated by Mihai Pop and Mihaela Lutea. The gallery was initially located in a former industrial space near the Hamburger Bahnhof Museum but in March 2012 it relocated to the ground floor in Potsdamer Strasse, in the former Tagesspiegel building complex, which is now housing several art galleries.
