Discovery Art Fair in Cologne & Frankfurt Invites New Exhibitors

Feb. 3, 2022

The Discovery Art Fair is launching its 2022 editions, with the long-standing objective of presenting young, fresh art to diverse audiences, removing barriers to art collection by offering a wide range of artistic positions and price points. The annual exhibition, dubbed the “art fair for the people,” presents established and young galleries, project spaces and artists in two locations—Cologne in the spring and Frankfurt (am Main) in autumn—and attracts visitors from all walks of life, from recognized collectors to casual art lovers and enthusiastic newcomers.

Founded over 15 years ago under a different name—Berliner Liste and Kölner Liste—the art fair initially took place in Berlin and Cologne, respectively. Stemming from the traditional atmosphere of an often elitist art market, the organization team sought to make a change, with the goal of making art accessible to the general public and inspiring them to join the collectors’ pool. The selection of exhibitors and the accompanying program is a clear reflection of this desire for openness: the relaxed atmosphere of the fair makes it amenable to new collectors in search of their first ever piece to purchase.

Preparations for the 2022 editions of Discovery Art Fair are underway, with the one in Cologne scheduled to open from April 28th to May 1st, while the Frankfurt edition happening from November 3rd to 6th, 2022. At this time, the fair team is accepting exhibitor applications for both fairs.
