Ausstellungsraum Q18


q18
Quartier am Hafen is a place of artistic dialogue, research and production. More than 80 professional visual artists, media artists, designers, dancers and musicians have rented rooms here since 2010, almost half of which are sponsored by the City of Cologne’s cultural department. Curated solo and group exhibitions by invited artists are shown four times a year in the Q18 exhibition space, which opened in 2011. The series is conceived by a different curator each year. A funding programme gives emerging curators the possibility to develop and position themselves over the course of the year. A residency programme is currently under development. [read more]

KUNSTHAUS KAT18 is an art space with studios, a project room and a gallery with a coffee bar. We promote artistic and cultural processes with the goal of improving the living conditions of the artists within the studio community in society. An integral part is exchange and collaboration with other artists and cultural institutions. Projects, exhibitions, audience discussions, readings and theatre performances take place regularly. KUNSTHAUS KAT18 is a GWK GmbH project. It emerged in 2014 from the creative workshop ALLERHAND, which was founded in 1993. [read more]
