Art to rent!
A library where you borrow contemporary art instead of books? The art historian and director of the municipal library, Horst-Johannes Tümmers, had the idea in 1973 to create a place where exactly this is possible. At the "Haus Saaleck" this idea finally became reality - the late Gothic house in the centre of Cologne has since been home to the artothek, where one can borrow contemporary art.
While otherwise, you can only admire the works of art in a museum, the artothek offers the possibility to hang the art directly in your living room. In addition, the artothek hosts exhibitions that deal with current art and encompass a variety of media - from painting, sculpture and drawing to photography and video installation.
