Bernhard Leitner »RoomReflection«
Temporary Installation Room 19

For the evening event of the “Ash Wednesday for the Artists”, which Kolumba organizes each year in cooperation with the Artists-Union in Cologne, the museum invited Austrian artist Bernhard Leitner, who consciously opted for Room 19 where he created the installation “RoomReflection”, reacting to the severed head of John, and the painting of Jürgen Paatz, both exhibited there. The acoustic room installation of strange beauty remains audible throughout the entire fasting season. – Bernhard Leitner, born in 1938, is a pioneer of sound installations. He studied architecture in Vienna, subsequently living in Paris from 1963 to 1966, in New York from 1968 to 1982, and in Berlin from 1982 to 1986. From 1987 to 2005 he was Professor for Trans-Medial art at the University for Applied Arts in Vienna. Exhibitions of his Sound-Space-Sculptures have taken place at (selection): P.S.1 (New York), documenta (Kassel), Biennale (Venice). Permanent sound-room installations in Berlin, Paris, Vienna, and St. Pölten, among other places. In 2008 a survey of his works from the last ten years was published in .P.U.L.S.E.
