Art Cologne is the world's oldest art fair for modern and contemporary art of the 20th and 21st century. Today's fair annually invites approximately 200 international galleries to showcase painting, sculpture, photography, prints, multiples, installations, performance and moving image art in the city of Cologne, cultural center of the Rhineland region and beyond.
The international galleries participating in the 49th Art Cologne covered the entire spectrum of the 20th and 21st centuries. Offering a showcase of select works and carefully assembled presentations, providing a fascinating insight into the past and present of the avant-garde.
'New positions', Art Cologne's international sponsorship programme for young, innovative artists is supported by the German Federal Government, Koelnmesse - the Fair organizers - and the Bundesverband Deutscher Galerien und Kunsthändler (BVDG). The Art Award for New positions is presented to the best of these young artists. The prizewinner is given a solo show at Cologne's Artothek and includes the publication of an exhibition catalogue. The Prize is made possible through the support of Deutsche Telekom. This year's selection panel had chosen 21 young positions, each of whom was allocated an additional 25 square metre area in the stands of the galleries representing them.
