Experiencing the art scene, exchanging ideas, discovering interesting new places – this is our special offer to our younger members!
Many people know the feeling: they have a strong interest in art but lack the motivation to attend exhibitions or cultural events by themselves. By joining our ‘Junge Mitglieder’ program, you’ll discover fascinating insights into the Museum Ludwig, various art institutions, and artist studios in Cologne and the surrounding area, all in the company of a small group. You’ll engage in meaningful conversations with fellow enthusiasts, artists, and collectors. We want to have a good time together: informal, topical, thought up by us – for you!
Here is a selection of our events:
Annual tour through the Art Cologne November 2023
Art Cologne is the annual highlight for all art lovers and collectors with a reach far beyond Cologne and the Rhineland. The Gesellschaft für Moderne Kunst is a must-see: Every year, we present the acquisitions of the “Junger Ankauf” initiative at our own stand. However, this is just one of many interesting stops on our joint tour of the impressive exhibition halls.
Gallery tour as part of the DC Open Galleries September 2023
At the fifteenth edition of the DC Open, 50 galleries opened their doors in Cologne and Düsseldorf. Our joint tour in Cologne led us to exciting positions at affordable prices.
Internationale Photoszene Köln May 2023
After work in Cologne’s Belgian Quarter, photographic art at its finest and a rousing festival feeling: our Young Members answered the call of the International Photoscene Cologne and explored several exhibitions during the tour. From established galleries and temporary art spaces to institutional exhibitions, they were given a diverse overview of contemporary photography.
MD Bar – After-Work-Drink and Artist-Talk February 2023
Cologne has many places that are worth discovering. One of them is the MD Bar. Artists David Ostrowski and Michail Pirgelis studied together at the Düsseldorf Art Academy, remained loyal to the Rhineland despite international success and realized their dream of opening their own bar in Cologne. Our members were able to see for themselves that both the art and the drinks there are hand-picked. Warm hospitality and honest stories from the art business: David Ostrowski and Michail Pirgelis were fabulous hosts!
