Off-spaces, project spaces, festivals, magazines, nomadic art projects, art associations – Cologne’s independent art initiatives form a central part of Cologne’s multifaceted art scene. Some have only been active for a short time, others for many years or even decades. They function as fluid spaces for artistic experimentation as well as transdisciplinary laboratories for new, independent formats. The diversity of off-platforms in Cologne as an impulse-giving force has a long tradition, what is new is their positioning: artists, curators and cultural workers organize themselves in a solidary alliance independent of the established institutions and celebrate this year for the fourth time with the joint weekend AIC ON the union of the Kunstinitiativen Köln / Art Initiatives Cologne, in short AIC. AIC invites you to the joint weekend AIC ON from 18-20 June 2021.
