The International Photoscene Cologne has been driven forward since the 1980s by the ideas and commitment of numerous people from the museum and gallery scene, politics and business. Since 2013, Heide Häusler has led the institution as artistic director and managing director. Together with Inga Schneider and Damian Zimmermann, she forms the Artistic Board. A whole lot of great people from the fields of art history, art, journalism and the creative industries in general are involved in the programme and the orientation of the Photoscene. With their impulses and approaches, they all ensure the polyphony of the programme.
