The NeumannLuz Agency was founded in Cologne in 1999 by Claudia Neumann and Kathrin Luz. The agency focused on PR and consultancy work and initiated projects for companies and institutions from the art, design and architecture industries. NeumannLuz also staged self-initiated exhibitions and trade fairs, including the 2004 rheinschau.art cologne projects trade fair for contemporary art.
NeumannLuz still understands itself as a network dedicated to design, architecture and contemporary art. Within this network, the teams around Claudia Neumann and Kathrin Luz collaborate on a project-specific basis.
