Art Comes Home

The world’s first modern Art Fair, Art Cologne runs from April 19 to 22.

Launched in 1967 by Cologne gallerists Hein Stunke and Rudolf Zwirner as Kölner Kunstmarkt, Art Cologne introduced a new concept in art fairs not only in Germany but all over the world despite harsh post-1945 conditions. Now, in its 46th year, art lovers are once again turning their attention to Art Cologne.

Welcoming close to sixty thousand visitors last year, Art Cologne is distinguished from other art fairs by its one-on-one communication between artists and art lovers and the opportunity it affords artists to make direct sales from their own stands.
