April, 16 – 20 2008

In 2005 OPEN SPACE was launched as an experimental, project related platform and unique environment, embedded in the very center of the Art Cologne. It was one of the first attempts to rethink and reinvent the framework of an art fair apart from standard booth settings.

The fourth edition of OPEN SPACE at the 42nd ART COLOGNE will present a selection of strong art scenes from global cities with a joint presentation of international galleries, artists and projects of contemporary art.

OPEN SPACE is also continuing as a platform for art related projects. This year OPEN SPACE has invited various projects from different urban contexts. Non profit space „Studio Voltaire“ from London will display their way to work with a presentation by Spartacus Chetwynd. The independent „Para/Site“ Art Space from Hong Kong has involved its founding member, Hong Kong artist Leung Chi Wo, to investigate the Asian Art Knots and to bring them into a joint presentation. The web-based Vernissage TV will open a TV studio on OPEN SPACE to produce a special program from there.
