4th International ‘Enter into Art’ Installations 2018 – Opening in Cologne

The “Enter into Art” exhibition period 2017-18 features 219 artists from 49 countries on five continents.

In addition, we have integrated the solo exhibitions of the first three award winners from 2017 into the Cologne exhibition.
