Pushkin & Gogol (b. 2017) originated in Berlin with the development of a contemporary art gallery in Kreuzberg and private office/gallery in Charlottenburg. The name Pushkin & Gogol is the title of a fake play written by Soviet-era avant-garde/absurdist/poet/writer Daniil Kharms. Late in the post-pandemic year of 2020, P&G turned into a multi-service art company based in Dallas, Texas.
