KÖLNER LISTE – the “discovery fair” for contemporary art

April 16th to 19th, 2015 | The New Yorker DOCK.ONE & HARBOUR.CLUB | Hafenstraße 1, 51063 Cologne | Opening: April 15th, 2015

The second edition of the KÖLNER LISTE was held at DOCK.ONE and HARBOUR.CLUB in 2015, parallel to the Art Cologne and only a stone´s throw away. From April 16th to 19th, the fair for young, fresh art was presented in a stylish atmosphere across 2000 sqm on the Mülheimer harbour.

The 2nd KÖLNER LISTE transferred the successful format of the eleven-year-old BERLINER LISTE exhibition to the Rhineland for the first time in 2014, bringing exciting artwork with high collectors’ potential to public attention in unique architectural surroundings.

Many thousands of visitors came to discover works still in a moderate price segment but earmarked for their quality and potential investment value.

The KÖLNER LISTE brings a new and attractive art segment to Cologne and the surrounding area, inspiring art buyers, art lovers and collectors to make new explorations and discover new favourite pieces.

The art exhibited ranges from contemporary painting, sculpture, drawings and graphic work to installations, video art and performance. Curator Dr. Peter Funken brings expertise to the fair, ensuring a careful selection of quality exhibitors. The art fair is a “must” for everyone who is looking for exceptional originals at moderate prices.

The next KOELNER LISTE will be held from April 14th to 17th, 2016.


We are more than satisfied with the fair, the very good visitor demographics and pleasant atmosphere. We sold five pieces by our emerging artist Constantin Schröder totalling 40,000 euro.

Stadtrevue | April 2014

We are more than satisfied after taking the chance of appearing at a new art exhibition. Thanks to the fair we have sold two large works and got to know new, young collectors.

Gallery owner Peter Klose, Essen

Following the Berliner Liste tradition, the Kölner format positions itself as a small, perfectly formed forum for fresh, contemporary art with high collectors‘ potential.

Stadtzauber | March/April 2014

There was unbelievable interest in the work of my emerging Romanian artists. Works by Ștefan Radu Crețu and Cristian Raduta have gone tot he hands of serious collectors. We were so impressed by the building, lighting and atmosphere at the KÖLNER LISTE and hope the fair will grow next year.

Gallery owner Dr. Joana Evers, 418 Contemporary Art Gallery, Bucharest, 2014 exhibitor

The Kölner Liste is a great opportunity to meet young, fresh artists. From the years of experience in Berlin, it’s a show with much know-how and an exciting location to match.

Anyone with a weakness for contemporary art or wanting to extend their collection with interesting new work should drop in to the Kölner Liste.

Zeitkunst | March 2014

The fair was amazing. We sold four great pieces. All of them by young collectors, so that we can be sure, that they are embedded in good and rising collections.

The exhibition mood was fantastic. The relaxed atmosphere was very therapeutic for a fair marathon, and the sales paid off. Even on what is usually a difficult Thursday, made good sales
