Art Cologne in Cologne, Germany is the world's oldest art fair of its kind. It was established in 1967 as Kölner Kunstmarkt. This year, approximately 200 international galleries showcase classic Modern, post-war and contemporary art in Hall 11 of the Cologne Exhibition Centre.
For the 2012 edition the fair's director Daniel Hug is breaking new grounds by collaborating with the New Art Dealers Alliance, who already runs a fair in Miami. Thus, Art Cologne 2012 sees the collaboration between two independent fairs, Art Cologne and NADA Cologne.
This video provides you with a tour through the fair on the preview/Vernissage day. When you stroll through the exhibition hall you see works by artists such as Dieter Roth, Frank Stella, Donald Baechler, Anselm Kiefer, Louise Bourgeois, Anish Kapoor, Antony Gormley, George Segal, Jean Tinguely, Philippe Parreno, Tony Cragg, Mel Ramos, and Christian Jankowski.
