With its second edition the new talents biennale becomes firmly established in Cologne’s cultural centre. Every other year, young graduates of the creative institutions of higher education of Cologne and Düsseldorf are presented. Thus more than 50 artists were presented at the same time at the newly opened Rheinauhafen of Cologne in 2008, the year of the premiere.

In June 2010 the second event will take place in selected spots of the centre of Cologne, mainly between the Kunstzentrum Neumarkt and the Rheinufer.

There will be contributions of more than 50 graduates of the

Media Art Academy Cologne,
ifs international filmschool cologne,
University of Music and Dance Cologne,
Köln International School of Design,
Robert Schumann University of Music Düsseldorf
Art Academy Düsseldorf
Marmara University, Istanbul
University Pécs, Ungarn
Folkwang University, Essen


Aside from Essen, the Capital of Culture 2010, this year the concept will be extended by the partnership with the nominated cities of Pecs and Istanbul. We look forward to having a close look at two fascinating European cultural centres by presenting two young artists from Pecs (within the framework of the Scene Ungarn ) and another one from Istanbul.
