> DESCRIPTION

The painting "Gallery of the archduke Leopold Wilhelm in Brussels", made in 1647 by artist David Teniers the Younger stands exemplatory for the second project of art galleries fiebach, minninger and Christian Nagel. In a shop located in the mall "Dumont-Carré", Breite Straße, one of the most commercial streets in Cologne, paintings of established as well as emerging artists are presented:

Patrick Alt, Peppi Bottrop, Lutz Braun, Merlin Carpenter, Clegg & Guttmann, Andreas Diefenbach, Georg Gatsas, Grit Hachmeister, Tobias Hauser, Kiron Khosla, Thomas Kilpper, Michael Krebber, Felix Kultau, Hans-Jörg Mayer, John Miller, Stefan Müller, Brett Lund, Cornelius Quabeck, Maximilian Rödel, Dominik Sittig, Josef Schulz, Henning Strassburger, Chris Succo, Cosima von Bonin, Joseph Zehrer, Gang Zhao, Heimo Zobernig

Evoking formally the Petersburg hanging, works of artists of both galleries are hung hierarchyless. The goods are for sale - in a shopping mall - where else!

Similarities to many poster and artshops that often 'delight' city centres are purposely drawn. Contemporarty art in the spheres of the world of consumption - this constellation of tensions might have surprising effects. Many visitors of the "Dumont-Carré" are given the possibilty to gain a new understanding of new visual experiences.
