Design Cologne! Join in with the 2nd Reclaim Award and show your art to the public—on a large surface.
18/1 billboards become your exhibition space for 10 days. You replace advertising with your art and become part of redesigning the public space. Advertising out—Art in!
In addition, display excerpts from your portfolio at our festival event. We give you space to set out small-format works, posters, books and cards. Become part of the supporting programme and get connected with other artists, curators and all who are interested in art.
551 artists from 29 countries took part in 2019. 25 artists were selected by our renowned jury. 12 artists (national + international) followed our invitation and used our showcase areas at the opening event to make their presentations.
Cologne is becoming a public museum again in 2020. The Reclaim Kollektiv, in partnership with this year’s jury, will be able to get about 40 artists onto 40 billboards during a big group show for 10 days in 2020. 40 billboards marked on a map and listed in a guide with all the info about the Award. 40 x art. Public and freely accessible!
Apply and get noticed. For one public, genuine, diverse, and extemporaneous.
