However, the mostly Berlin crowd turned out to somewhat retiring in their bidding appetites, with most lots going for at or below their lower estimates. An Eliasson edition and an Iris van Dongen pastel on paper proved to be popular, but there were bargains to be had, notably a Jonathan Meese oil for €2200 (estimated €6000 – 8000), and an Isa Melsheimer installation for €700 (estimated at €4000 – 6000). The continued existence of this landmark Berlin offspace however remains assured on its 10th anniversary, and that is something to be celebrated.
