Heide Häusler, born in 1977, is an art historian specializing in photography and contemporary art and lives and works (mostly) in Cologne. During and after studying art history, philosophy, and film and television studies at Ruhr-Universität-Bochum, she worked at various museums in the field of exhibition conception and organization; from 2006-2008 she was an editor at Photography Now in Berlin. As a curator and exhibition manager she has worked for the Museum für Angewandte Kunst in Cologne, the Stadtmuseum in Düsseldorf or the Schirn Kunsthalle in Frankfurt, among others. From 2009-2016 she was exhibition manager of the Fotofestival Mannheim, Ludwigshafen, Heidelberg (now Biennale für aktuelle Fotografie). Since 2013, she has been responsible for the management of Photoszene Köln and defines the basic direction and activities together with the team. For her, every look at photography is a look at the world - a fascinating, astonishing, insightful and sometimes frightening tableau of history, possibilities and versions.

Our Team

Internationale Photoszene 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. Heide Häusler has headed the institution as Artistic Director and Managing Director since 2013. Since 2017, an Artistic Board has defined the long-term programme concepts. Until 2023, the Artistic Board consisted of Heide Häusler, Inga Schneider and Damian Zimmermann. Since 2024, Heide Häusler, Lucia Halder and Damian Zimmermann form the Artistic Board. A whole host of great people from the fields of art history, art, journalism and the creative industries in general are involved in the programme and the direction of the Photoszene. With their impulses and approaches, they all contribute to the diversity of the programme.
