- Bureau, Hot Wheels Athens, LC Queisser, Stereo, and Wschód move to Cologne. Spread between New York, Athens, Tbilisi, and Warsaw, they come together to collaborate in ways they can’t apart. To share a space like this suggests a sort of cohabitation; a pooling of resources and communal decision making, but also a leap of faith, trust, and commitment. Their partnership entails a cross examination of each other and their models of operation. Although demanding, this process can facilitate novelty and experimentation. In the act of moving in, each of the five galleries is encouraged to offer and receive, both between themselves and collectively, and by extension Cologne. Each will be presenting one solo show, and together three group shows: one to start the program, one in the summer, and one in the fall.
