// ADS OUT - ART IN // 

// OPEN CALL for Artists - Only 4 days left! // 

Where usually cruises, cars, or detergents find large places to shine, there will now be art. 40 billboards become exhibition surfaces.

This year, the Reclaim Kollektiv holds the second Reclaim Award in Cologne. For the debut in 2019, 551 artists from 29 countries applied to redesign 25 billboards in urban areas of Cologne. Since this went beyond any intended scope, there will be already 40 large-scale billboards to show art in 2020.

Reclaim grows. A plus of 15 surfaces means even more radiance for the artpieces, even more visibility for the artists. The stage is ready, Cologne as public museum. Perception in public space is the highest: large-scale billboards on bustling streets, busy train stations, and in urban, alternative neighbourhoods of Cologne.

Curated by a renommated jury of galerists, artists and art historians, the Reclaim Award 2020 takes place in Cologne from June 16 to 26. For an audience, undisguised, diverse and unprepared.

Prizes Details: 

The winners will exhibit their works in the form of 18/1 posters on billboards rented in a central location, for the duration of 10 days. Artists from all fields and all countries are welcome to participate in the competition.

Eligibility:

Billboards become cultural conceptual surfaces, artistic canvases, or photographic landscapes. The city a public museum. Reclaim replaces advertising on large surfaces with your art. 

With the award we want to make a contribution towards culturally enhancing the public space and making Cologne’s urban profile more attractive. We want to display billboards that stimulate, illustrate diversity and difference and open up conceptual spaces. Billboards that inspire and activate and have free and independent content. We want to make a contribution towards ensuring more discussions about the shaping and use of the public space. We want surfaces that puzzle us and promote experimental and lateral thinking. Easily perceivable, public and for everyone!

To this end, we are inviting entries to a competition where the winners will exhibit their works in the form of 18/1 posters on billboards rented in a central location, for the duration of 10 days. Artists from all fields and all countries are welcome to participate in the competition.

Parallel to ART COLOGNE, the DISCOVERY ART FAIR (formerly known as KÖLNER LISTE) will be held from April 11th to 14th, 2019 in Cologne, the largest city of Germany's most populous federal state of North Rhine-Westphalia. The location for the 6th edition of the well-known art fair is again the XPOST in central Cologne, which offers the ideal space for exhibiting a wide range of contemporary art across 4000 sqm.

Take advantage of the prosperous capital and art collector density in Cologne, the Rhineland and neighbouring Benelux countries. The curated exhibition aims to attract collectors and art lovers, inviting them to purchase original artworks for collections or private homes. DISCOVERY ART FAIR is also the place to make new connections. Exhibitors in previous years have found the fair not only to be a place to sell their work, but a springboard to entering leading international fairs and renowned exhibitions.

In parallel with ART COLOGNE, last year, the fair presented 108 exhibitors from 20 countries. Attracting approximately 10.000 collectors, influencers and art lovers, the DISCOVERY ART FAIR has firmly established itself as an unmissable art fair format in Germany.
