ART COLOGNE via Vernissage TV

April, 16 – 20 2008



The fourth edition of OPEN SPACE for the 42st ART COLOGNE is near to come and will not only present a joint presentation of international galleries, artists and projects of contemporary art.

As a premiere, Vernissage TV will broadcast from the OPEN SPACE studio live and interactive. This live program will be streaming as Web TV Special on the websites of Art Cologne, OPEN SPACE and Vernissage TV on April 16-18, 2008.

The live coverage not only provides art lovers with the opportunity to attend the OPEN SPACE talks from a distance, but is also offering interactive features to take part in the discussion. Users will be able to chat and interact with the participants of the OPEN SPACE program.

Vernissage TV is the Internet’s unique TV art project, which covers exhibitions and events in the fields of contemporary art, design and architecture. The objective is to give an authentic insight into the world of art by the means of film and video. Vernissage TV materializes as video podcast / Internet TV channel / video archive in two series: the “No Comment” section and interviews with protagonists of the art world.

Live Program

Tuesday, April, 15 2 – 6 pm
A highlight of the OPEN SPACE live streaming will be a unique project by CHRISTIAN JANKOWSKI, who is well-known for his artworks reflecting the pulp world of private TV shows. For Vernissage TV on OPEN SPACE, Jankowski will bring contemporary artworks from the Art Cologne on sale by covering the rules and habits of TV shopping shows. Promoted by a professional TV vendor, the visitors of Vernissage TV will be able to buy these great artworks directly in and from the OPEN SPACE studio. This media allurement will at least be producing and liquidating a new artwork by Christian Jankowski: the taped salesshow itself.

Wednesday, April, 16 to Friday, April, 18 daily 4 to 6 pm
Listen to the independent art scenes, with: Karolina Dankow, Marina Leuenberger (Karma International, Zurich) and Beatrix Ruf (Kunsthalle Zurich) – Joe Scotland (Studio Voltaire, London) and Julia Voss (Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung) – Tobias Berger (Para/Site Art Space, Hong Kong) and Leung Chi Wo (artist, Hong Kong).
