FAR OFF opened 2016 as a new platform for galleries and art spaces to promote their artists to an international audience, during the spring art fair season in Cologne (Art Cologne 2016). From April 14-17, 2016, a giant pop up store opened up on 1200 sqm at an old train station in Cologne Ehrenfeld. It´s the idea to connect producer and consumer and to showcase artistic concepts of high quality.
We want to create a sphere where good ideas reach its facilitators and artists meet up with collectors and entrepreneurs, because it´s about to meet the requirements of an ever changing art world to bring its true contemporary spirit onto the market.
FAR OFF opens up for collectors who want to get introduced into the young and vibrant art scene of Cologne, North Rhine-Westphalia and nearby. It´s the new meeting point during the art fair, located at the outside border of Cologne´s city center with a spaceous outside area for installations, food stands and parties at the basement Club JackWho every night.
