LABOR


labor
The project gallery LABOR, part of the Ebertplatz passage since 2005, is a pioneer in this inner-city location, which has developed into one of the main art locations in Cologne over recent years. The large shop windows offer glimpses of the respective exhibitions, even outside openings hours. LABOR was established as an exhibition space for contemporary art through the founding of a booster club at the beginning of 2013. Alongside classical exhibitions, LABOR also consciously opens itself to cross-genre formats and sees itself (and the Ebertplatz passage) as a stage for experiments. A fringe programme includes performances, readings and concerts. In addition, LABOR is regularly home to various festivals, for example the Internationale Photoszene, the architecture biennale plan and the Passagen Interior Design Week. [read more]
