With the strongest economy in Europe and one of the most stringently regulated art markets in the world, Germany plays a key part in the contemporary international art market.
Germany is acclaimed as one of the birthplaces of modern art and the development of the avant-garde, and as the home to the first international fair for modern and contemporary art, held in the city of Cologne in 1967, it boasts a history of artistic innovation. Originally titled Kunstmarkt Köln (today known as Art Cologne), the fair attracted collectors from across the world and became the prototype for the now well established international art fair model, reflected by recognizable fairs such as Art Basel and Frieze, to name a few.
