Photoszene Festival becomes Photoszene United,
10 days in May becomes a whole photo summer full of art, exhibitions and talks. We start with a kick-off on May 21st!

As part of Photoszene United, the five exhibitions of the second round of the Artist Meets Archive project by Yasmine Eid-Sabbagh, Joan Fontcuberta, Anna Orlowska, Philipp Goldbach and Rosângela Rennó await you at the Deutsches Tanzmuseum, the Rautenstrauch-Joest-Museum, the Kapelle am Gereonskloster and the Museum für Angewandte Kunst Köln. There will also be photography exhibitions throughout the city - at Museum Ludwig, artothek, many galleries like Galerie Julian Sander or Galerie Bene Taschen, and of course the many great art spaces in this city!
