Semjon Contemporary represents German and international artists from the fields of painting, sculpture, installation, photography and video, presented in two separate exhibition rooms. The individual exhibition space on the right-hand side is complemented by the adjoining Salon Cabinet, in which various works by all gallery and guest artists can be seen. This double concept refers to the genesis of the gallery. In 2001, artist H.N. Semjon brought the project space KioskShop berlin (KSb) to life. Originally a long-term installation in Berlin-Mitte, the result was a ten-year intervention project that offered many upcoming artists an exhibition and discussion forum.
In September 2011, Semjon Contemporary, which is also owned by H.N., moved to the former location of the kiosk shop. Architect Bjørn Mündner was resopnsible for the redevelopment of the gallery and the Salon Cabinet. Heiner Großmann carries out the programming and development of the gallery database and implements the graphic designs of the gallery homepage of dinazwei grafikwerkstatt (Petra Rühle and Heinz Bähr). The graphic appearance (office equipment) including the gallery logo was also designed by dinazwei grafikwerkstatt.
