LOOK! LISTEN!

Art is in the churches

Art and the church have a long mutual past. In many areas, the history of European art illustrates the Christian accounts of God and Man. We find it in the windows of church interiors, on the walls, the altars and on the pulpits.

However, in the modern era, art and the church often go separate ways.

In this Exhibition Series, contemporary art and the church communicate with each other: The artwork should be commentary and impulse as well as complement to that which is otherwise only to be seen in the individual church. Thereby, we are consciously creating a connection to the designated European Year of Cultural Heritage 2018.

LOOK – We capture the world in pictures. In the Exhibition Series (usually) new and old art meet in sacred rooms. The works desire to be seen in the context of the church and vice versa: both develop a new impact through the other. The harmony of art and sacred rooms invite a closer and more exact view of the Old and the New.

LISTEN – Whoever is addressed by a work of art, listens within. What is the effect of what I see within me? At the same time, we listen in the churches to what God can say to us. Thus, these churches become places of reflection and meditation – about oneself and art in the light of new and old “anchor points” of attentiveness. Allow yourself to be affected and beguiled into contemplation!
