Art Cologne 2010

The 44th ART COLOGNE will take place April 21-25, 2010. The last edition of the ART COLOGNE proved able to meet the challenges of the new economy by physical consolidation, conceptual expansion and easy access to the cultural riches of the Rhineland.

The 44th Internationaler Kunstmarkt will build on this model. Located again in Levels 1 and 2 of Hall 11 of the Koelnmesse grounds in Cologne-Deutz, the 44th ART COLOGNE will showcase 180 modern, post-war and contemporary galleries.

Modern and post-war will occupy level 1. Level 2 will present contemporary galleries, as well as Open Space and New Contemporaries, ART COLOGNE's proven platforms for the presentation of young and cutting-edge international art.

The Vernissage will take place on April 20, 2010 from 5 p.m. until 9 p.m.

"people are wrong when they say that photography in art museums isn't what it used to be. It's what it used to be – that's what's wrong with it."

Otto Karvonen - Birdhouses

As in "Alien Palace", Karvonen takes the tense political climate in the Netherlands, the complex debate with regard to immigration and integration, and the position of the ‘stranger’ as the starting point for a new sculptural project entitled "Alien Palace Birdhouse Collection". The “Collection” consists of six birdhouses that were specially developed for migrating birds in Amsterdam. In general birdhouses have a welcoming character and are made of warm, natural materials, but Karvonen has opted for cement, aluminium and stainless steel. The harsh aesthetics of his designs are derived from various Dutch detention centres for asylumseekers, such as those in Schiphol Oost, Alphen aan den Rijn, Soesterberg, Zaanstad, Zestienhoven and Dordrecht.

From 24 March these birdhouses will be hung from streetlights in the Vondelpark, close to the Filmmuseum (for the exact locations please see the map on this web page), where they will remain on view till the end of July 2010. In September 2010 the birdhouses and photographic documentation of the project will be exhibited in the enclosed garden of de Appel Boys’ school.
