European Kunsthalle presents KölnShow2

…what will be told of today tomorrow: KölnShow2

Only a few weeks after the opening of its first exhibition Models for
Tomorrow: Cologne the European Kunsthalle puts a new event on the
agenda – KölnShow2: 18 selected galleries will make space available for
the programme of founding director Nicolas Schafhausen – who is also
director of Witte de With Center for Contemporary Art in Rotterdam and
curator of the German pavilion at the 52nd Venice Biennial – and guest
curator Florian Waldvogel, Witte de With. 22 young artists from 12
different nations, whose work has to date rarely been shown in Germany,
take up the challenge of meeting the full title of the exhibition:
…what will be told of today tomorrow: KölnShow2.
