The ALEXANDER OCHS GALLERIES BERLIN I BEIJING was opened in 1997. Alexander Ochs founded the gallery with the intention of representing East Asian artists in Europe, with a special focus on Chinese Contemporary art.

Until 2003 the gallery was called ASIAN FINE ARTS I PRÜSS & OCHS. Since founding the Beijing branch WHITE SPACE in February 2004, the gallery operates under its current name.

The gallery in Beijing is now managed by the Chinese artist Tian Yuan and is autonomously developing its own program with its all-Chinese team.

The gallery is the exclusive representative in Europe for Fang Lijun, Yang Shaobin, Yin Xiuzhen and other important positions. In China and South East Asia, Fang Lijun is represented by WHITE SPACE BEIJING, amongst others.

In 2002 Alexander Ochs curated a solo exhibition in the Forum Ludwig Aachen. In Asia Alexander Ochs leveraged solo exhibitions for Yang Shaobin and Fang Lijun, amongst others, in the National Gallery Jakarta.
