As the world’s oldest art fair, Art Cologne has accompanied many trends right from the start. It was established in order to bring back energy into the German art market, which had lost popularity after World War II.
Later, a new audience, alongside trade professionals such as art dealers, collectors, gallerists and museum directors, became interested in the Fair. Here, curious individuals can get to know the contemporary and new stars of the art scene.
This year, almost 200 international galleries will exhibit paintings, sculptures, photographs, prints, installations and video art. The Fair supports young artists and galleries through its scholarship programs “New Positions” and “New Contemporaries”. This is how Art Cologne can remain the oldest art fair in the world.
