Nina Roehrs studied economics, politics and international relations at the universities of St. Gallen and St. Andrews. And then worked for 13 years at the major Swiss bank UBS in various strategy and business development positions. In 2016, she founded Roehrs & Boetsch, one of the few galleries worldwide to devote its programme to exploring digitalisation and its implications for society. By working very closely with young as well as emerging artists, Roehrs & Boetsch’s exhibitions explore and critically reflect the relationship between contemporary culture, digitalisation and art in a range of media and techniques. Furthermore, as an art gallery, Roehrs & Boetsch takes great interest in actively discussing and developing new forms of exhibiting artworks where conventional methods have failed. The overriding mission is to create a space for critical reflection on current and past developments as well as provide a platform for new positions in art. In 2019, Roehrs & Boetsch launched CUBE, the first virtual gallery for virtual art.
