Film Cologne: A Goth Life

Special Exhibition Film Cologne 2016, Hall 11.3, Art Cologne 2016 © Koelnmesse

Art Cologne 2017
April 26 to 29, 2017
Vernissage: Tuesday, April 25, 2017, 4–8 p.m.

The FILM COLOGNE section is dedicated to the medium of moving image and was introduced at ART COLOGNE 3 years ago. With the special exhibition A Goth Life, this year’s edition of ART COLOGNE will show a compilation of artwork editions curated by and selected from Daata Editions.

A Goth Life is a selection of artwork that, when compiled together, create a composite tale of our joyously soul-less, self-reflective, insular, tension and angst-ridden times. The use of the Internet is our guide, confidante, entertainment, mirror, window and general outlet, which has created an alternative social reality, with artists commentating on and providing a contemporary anthropology for this coming of age. This will play throughout the days of the art fair. A Goth Life is playing each day on a repeated cycle.

Artists in A Goth Life include Larry Achiampong, Thora Dolven Balke, David Blandy, Jake Chapman, Jacky Connolly, Keren Cytter, Casey Jane Ellison, Tracey Emin, Ed Fornieles, Leo Gabin, Yung Jake, Rachel Maclean, Jillian Mayer, Takeshi Murata, Rashaad Newsome, Tameka Norris, Hannah Perry, Hannah Quinlan & Rosie Hastings, Scott Reeder, Jacolby Satterwhite, Zadie Xa.
