Since 2009 Glasmoog is an exhibition space for contemporary art at the Kunsthochschule für Medien Köln (KHM)/Academy of Media Arts Cologne transferring and extending the schools discourses into a public gallery. With about 80 square meters Glasmoog, a former showroom run by the Moog family selling window and mirror glass, provides a simple dense space, primarily characterized by large windows opening to the main street. To name the gallery after its familiar name “Glas Moog” reflects the conversion from a neighborhood shaped by traditional merchants and crafters to a micro-structured art school, that since its fairly new foundation about 25 years ago grew its campus organically into available workshops and spaces. Glasmoog’s exhibition program directed by Heike Ander operates independently inside the school as a station for research in artistic practices, mechanisms and strategies. Glasmoog works locally as an interface between academy, neighborhood, city and the Rhine region. Glasmoog also cooperates with regional and international initiatives, projects, academies and public institutions. Complemented by public events, artist talks, performances and independent presentations various exhibitions by national and international artists and artist groups among them students, graduates and alumni of KHM, have been so far realized. In irregular intervals the series "Calling Out of Context" introduces outstanding artistic platforms and organizations. Catalogs, artist books and other printed matter document the exhibitions and are published under Glasmoog Books.
