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. After several problematic years and since Daniel Hug took over the director position at Art Cologne, the fair seems to be back on the right track. For the 2012 edition that opens today 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. In this video VernissageTV attends the Preview and Vernissage of this year’s edition of the international art fair. April 17, 2012.
