At Art 39 Basel the gallery Klosterfelde presented a video by German artist Christian Jankowski entitled “Kunstmarkt TV” (Art Market TV), that shows two shopping channel hosts selling artworks via VernissageTV’s live streaming platform in the Open Space section of the international art fair Art Cologne 2008. In this video, we take a look at the video and Matthias v. Stenglin (Klosterfelde) provides us with a short introduction to the work. The performance at Open Space / Art Cologne with the hosts John Dalke und Khadra Sufi was organized by Meyer Kainer Gallery, Vienna. Art 39 Basel, June 7, 2008.
