ARTRMX subject 2008: "Where is my mind?"


Starting in August 22nd till 31st 2008 „ARTRMX COLOGNE VOL.01” is a topic based art festival that presents contemporary photography, street art, painting, graphics and video art in an extraordinary frame – a platform for lively exchanges between international artists, collectors, gallery-owners and art interested people.

The „ARTRMX COLOGNE VOL.01” exhibitions take place in different off-locations (such as apartments, empty buildings or lofts) throughout Cologne. To participate in these exhibitions, the artrmx e. V. invites young artists to send in their work or their series in regards to the given subject for 2008 „WHERE IS MY MIND?”. In collaboration with artistic advisors, the artrmx e. V. will assemble and distribute the work among the different exhibition spaces.


"The mind of the artist is always the point of maximal sensitivity and resourcefulness in exposing altered realities in the common culture." Herbert Marshall McLuhan
Assault on the senses: in the market of advertisement-bawlers, digital-showmen and politics-jugglers the collective attention fluctuates between uncountable commercial possibilities. It’s about time for a private inventory: What do I stand for? Which detections, discernments and disclosures are in my focus of interest? Where does the outward appearance deceive reality? And which illusion is worth to fall for? The artrmx association challenges young artists: see, where no one else can see! Alert, unconventional and inventive positions are wanted, reflecting the present artistically or in documentary style. The competition starts in December 2007. Entry deadline: April 15th 2008.


The obligation lies on the examination of the 2008 given subject „WHERE IS MY MIND?”. Any works from the following genres are allowed to participate: photography, street art, painting, graphics and video art.


The artrmx e. V. is responsible for the conception, the organisation, the PR and execution of the programme as well as for the realisation of an exhibition booklet and catalogue. In addition the artrmx e. V. will arrange a frame programme with special exhibitions, parties and symposiums.
