Cologne art scene moves to Brussels for one weekend: Brussels-Cologne Contemporaries

A work of art? Or just some junk someone has forgotten to pick up? You’ll certainly be asking yourself that question at some point, upon visiting Brussels-Cologne Contemporaries, this weekend. Because (1) not all the works of art at this fair that isn’t a fair are that great and (2) they are presented in a vast space that looks as if the construction workers have just left the building. But: BCC, the 2nd edition of an informal encounter between emerging art galleries from Brussels (7) and Cologne (12). Every gallery presents a single artist, and a special BCC Award (a solo show at Centrale, Brussels, and €1000) is awarded too (winner: Marcus Kleinfeld, gallery Schmidt & Handrup, Cologne). Do drop by, as the exhibition space at MAD, the new ‘mode and design’ center in Brussels, is much bigger than you’ll expect, because you’ll be able to discover new artists, ánd admission is free. (10 Place du Nouveau Marché aux Grains/Nieuwe Graanmarkt; Sat 19 & Sun 20-1; noon-7PM)
