Idea & concept:
The virtualization of the real world awakens the longing for real experiences, authentic conversations and the real facial expression of the other person. Art awakens our passion and enthusiasm for the unspeakable. Culture merges with lifestyle, advertising and the entertainment industry. Our society is characterized by an ever shorter period of validity for trends, major events and what is perceived as authentic or special. Therefore, the exchange between art, brands, customers and service providers is elementary for empathy, innovation and success. With this approach, the organizers start in August 2021 a new art fair in Hamburg, the second largest city in Germany.
The new INC corporating art fair offers a special Textile Art Space and thus creates space for this versatile art. Hamburg is predestined to be an international location, as the climate has given textile culture a significant presence, especially in the northern countries of Europe.

The new art fair in Hamburg is being implemented by one of the founders of the STROKE art fair & the ARTMUC art fair. With over 500,000 visitors, over 2,500 participants and 500 galleries & platforms, our formats here in Munich have successfully shaped a solid art market over the past 12 years.
The Textile Art Space is initiated in cooperation with the "Textile Atelier Beate von Harten & Celina von Harten". The internationally successful studio is passionate about the art of textiles and curates the project together with the initiator Raiko Schwalbe.

Date and Location:
The start in Hamburg will take place from Thursday, August 26th  to Sunday, August 29th, 2021.
The new exploring fair in Hamburg will be located in a district that most Hamburgers discover: the Oberhafenquartierin the Hafencity. The area includes a former freight station where two large halls opposite for the "INC corporatingart fair" will be used. The event is positioned very centrally, easily accessible and in the immediate vicinity of the Deichtorhallen.

Participation & Fees:
Basic price: 140 € / sqm net for participation in the Textile Art Space (normal price 175 € / sqm net).
For a clear overall presentation, the organizers focus on a large coherent area within the art fair. Textile works are presented within the Textile Art Space as:
1) Objects hanging / mounted on the wall
2) free-standing as a three-dimensional object (with / without base)  
3) as a freely suspended installation from the ceiling structure
Due to the height of approx. 6 m and the charming working character of this former warehouse for freight wagons, this room offers space for particularly large-format textiles and free-hanging installations. The assembly of the ceiling structures is an opportunity to act on a large scale-in a museum style, so to speak. All participants in the Textile Art Space are presented in the catalogue. In addition, the following two fees apply per participant:
Integration in the online edition of the fair:
includes inclusion in the online version of the art fair, which can be accessed online up to 12 weeks after the event: 75 € (including 3 works of art per exhibited artist)
