Opening on Wednesday 23 of March is the third installment of the Illustratoren Festival in Cologne.

Held every two years, the festival brings together 50 selected illustrators in an exhibition that showcases the diversity of illustration practice in North Rhine-Westphalia. This year’s festival focuses on the theme, ‘The Year of the Monkey’, and includes a programme of lectures, short talks, exhibition tours and an ongoing wall installation project during the festival.
