Art Cologne is the world’s oldest and longest running fair for 20th and 21st century fine art. Founded in 1967 the fair for modern and contemporary art was once the undisputed number one. After some difficult years, the fair is on the rise again. The strategy of former gallerist Daniel Hug pays off, more and more renowned galleries participate in the fair again. But the fair not only succeeded in bringing back the big name art dealers, but also strengthend its relevance for presenting and supporting emerging art with the integration of the NADA fair.
