ARTRMX COLOGNE

LOGO ARTRMX, CologneCOLOGNE’S OFF SHOW FOR CONTEM-PORARY ART

Starting in August 22nd till 31st 2008 „ARTRMX COLOGNE VOL.01” is a topic based art festival

 presenting contemporary photography, street art, painting, graphics, installation and video art in an extraordinary frame – a platform for lively exchanges between international artists, collectors, gallery-owners and art interested people.   From almost 400 submitted works the jury chose 52 artists who will exhibit their works in different locations (such as galleries, apartments, shops, empty buildings and off-site locations) throughout Cologne accompanied by a frame program with lectures and opening parties.

JAHRESTHEMA 2008: WHERE IS MY MIND?SUBJECT 2008: WHERE IS MY MIND?

“The mind of the artist is always the point of maximal sensitivity and resourcefulness in exposing altered realities in the common culture.” Herbert Marshall McLuhan Assault on the senses: in the market of advertisement-bawlers, digital-showmen and politics-jugglers the collective attention fluctuates between uncountable commercial possibilities. It’s about time for a private inventory: What do I stand for? Which detections, discernments and disclosures are in my focus of interest? Where does the outward appearance deceive reality? And which illusion is worth to fall for? The artrmx association challenges young artists: see, where no one else can see! Alert, unconventional and inventive positions are wanted, reflecting the present artistically or in documentary style.

ACHIEVEMENTS OF THE ARTRMX e.V.

The artrmx e. V. is responsible for the conception, the organisation, the PR and execution of the programme as well as for the realisation of an exhibition booklet. In addition the artrmx e. V. will arrange a frame programme with special exhibitions, parties and a symposium.
