Martina Kaiser
Cologne Contemporary Art


Martina Kaiser, a gallery owner in Cologne since 1997, has been presenting her art programme since November 2011 in a heritage-protected former cardboard factory which was rebuilt as a studio and gallery complex by the architects Thies Marwede and professor Schneider-Wesseling in 1983.

It was then Paul Maenz, one of the most important gallery owners in the 70s-90s, who made this legendary place a centre of contemporary art.

Bismarckstraße 50 is close to the urban hotspot “ Belgisches Viertel ” in Cologne, a place for creative people, artists and renowned for its galleries, agencies and media scene.

The gallery presents six times a year international contemporary art from the media, photographs, paintings and sculptures are shown.
