One of Cologne’s more prominent art hubs, Ehrenfeld
, is home to artrmx e.V. (spoken: art remix), a bustling art association founded in 2006. Primarily known as promoter of biennial CityLeaks Urban Art Festival
, the association also runs Atelierzentrum Ehrenfeld (AZE), a studio community established in 2013, offering workspaces for 17 artists of most diverse backgrounds and housing regular exhibitions, such as „Gruppe 69“, the annual group shows of resident artists. Apart from its longstanding focus on urban art, artrmx continually realizes exhibitions of national and international artists from the fields of painting, video, photography, installation, performance and media art. With a surreal mural on its front facade, the Atelierzentrum owes a striking eyecatcher to Brazilian muralist Claudio Ethos who has also left his mark on other walls of the neighbourhood.
