Sauvage was launched as an independent art space in June 2018 by Monika Leyer-Pritzkow and Henning Boecker, serving as a platform to promote relevant positions in contemporary art and visual culture. Sauvage realizes unique artistic projects together with artists, curators, and collectors, as much as possible bypassing ordinary commercial constraints. Sauvage started in a former costume warehouse of the Opera in Bonn, in July 2019 Sauvage took over a new space at Bastionstrasse Düsseldorf.
