Boddenberg is a studio house with exhibition space in the family's former flower shop. One of our concerns is to make the artistic discourse visible beyond the city centre in the outer districts of Cologne. Changing exhibitions with a focus on individual positions are shown.
The two large-format neon signs on the building's façade give it its name. During opening hours, they shine bright green. At the same time, they refer to the programme's focus on using traditional structures of the suburban retail trade for exhibitions of new positions. The exposed location of the old corner building in the town ensures a conspicuous but naturally unobtrusive integration into the neighbourhood and at the same time a gentle moment of irritation due to the constantly changing situation in the space. The room's architecture, with its four large shop windows and its position as raised parterre, can be read as a display case and is very well suited for the presentation of a wide variety of media, such as installation and performance.
The internal focus with regard to the studios located in the house is on conceptual culinary art and installation.
