Exhibitor information & prices

The Discovery Art Fair Cologne (formerly known as KÖLNER LISTE) has positioned itself as the fair of discovery, where contemporary art can be purchased at reasonable prices. It is also the only satellite exhibition of Art Cologne.

International galleries, project groups and individual artists have the opportunity to showcase their work at this Cologne fair, entering one of the Europe’s most important art markets, and profiting from the high density of capital and collectors in the Rhineland and the neighbouring Benelux countries.

Intensive press work and a sustainable marketing concept guarantee that collectors and first-time art buyers have Discovery Art Fair dates locked in their schedule. The fair is purposely positioned in a market segment accessible to all art lovers, permitting every interested party to take home their favourite pieces. Exhibitor and visitor numbers have increased steadily since the first exhibition is 2014.

The XPOST Köln is the location for the fair since 2017, providing plenty of space for the wide range of different artworks. From small graphic prints to monumental installations, the art on show will fill the central area and light-flooded rooms of XPOST, making it an attractive address for all exhibitors and visitors.
