Art Cologne 2008

Opening reception of the 42nd International Fair for Modern and Contemporary Art, Art Cologne, 2008. First impressions of the fair with focus on the Open Space section. April 15, 2008.

Update (June 9, 2020): At Art Cologne 2008, VernissageTV set up a quite complex studio in the Open Space sector of the fair to record two shopping channel hosts selling artworks and stream it live, so people could bid online. The performance at Open Space / Art Cologne with the hosts John Dalke und Khadra Sufi was afterwards used by German artist Christian Jankowski to create his artwork “Kunstmarkt TV” (Art Market TV) that was on view at Art Cologne 2018 (April 18-22, 2018) in Hall 11.3 B16, Sonderschau LBBW. To celebrate the 10 year anniversary of this pioneering livestreaming project, we published the original footage that was streamed and recorded via Ustream on May 24, 2018.
