About the Gallery

Easily accessible by train or by car, Galleri Tapper-Popermajer is located very close to major cities in the booming Öresund region. On Artsy we are open 24/7, but our physical space you can visit only by appointment. Welcome to our cosy old train station right in the middle of Skåne.

History of Galleri Tapper-Popermajer

Galleri Tapper-Popermajer was founded already 23 years ago in Malmö, the third largest city in Sweden. During the early years, a bold and unique exhibition program featuring Swedish as well as international contemporary artists established the gallery as a respected venue.

For a number of years the gallery was located close to the concert hall and opera house in Malmö but then moved to a more spacious exhibition space even closer to the city centre. With 400 m2 exhibition area, the Tapper-Popermajer gallery was then one of the largest in the region.

During the years in Malmö, the gallery collaborated with many business partners and sponsors. To mention but a few: Malmö Konserthus, Folksam, Malmö Opera, Christinehof slott, Malmö Citysamverkan, and of course worked with and represented numorous great artists.

Then, in 2007, the gallery moved from the big city to the old trainstation in Teckomatorp. A large building with loads of history and charm, located right in the center of the Swedish-Danish Öresundsregionen (see map).

A project named Kulturzon was soon initiated with funds from the EU and the local municipality. The Kulturzon project promoted the village of Teckomatorp as a unique destination for cultural activities and art. Over recent years, the old train station and the Kulturzon have successively developed into a multifacetted meeting place for various cultural activities.  

In 2019, Galleri Tapper-Popermajer opened up a second exhibition space in Landskrona city centre. Since 2021 however, due to the Covid situation, we have been operational mainly online (Artsy) and in our office / main gallery space in Teckomatorp.

The business is currently centered around selected artists that we promote and represent on a permanent basis. We all the time have a number their works in storage on location in Teckomatorp.

The gallery is owned by Hans Tapper. For many years he dedicated himself to fine art and culture in parallel to a career in advanced medical research. However, ever since Hans acquired the old station building in 2006 all his passion goes to his gallery, the artists, and the gallery clients.
