Readings and performances
accompanying the Exhibition "Art is Liturgy".

12:30 and 1:30 p.m.: Manos Tsangaris, "Investigating Kolumba - a Game of Amazement and Decisions"(2013), reading and sound performance

1 p.m. ff.: Seline Baumgartner, "The Movement" (2013), performance in the museum and around the city, beginning at Kolumba

2 p.m. until ca. 4 p.m.: Ellen Keusen, "Berta, I" (2009) Reading with Nik Benda and Ruth Marie Kröger (Schauspiel Cologne)

Concepts such as space, time, order, body, action and play comprise the leading themes of this year's annual exhibition. It is dedicated to the work of American artist Paul Thek (1933-1988), bringing it into a dialogue with works of art centering around similar topics and questions. Thek's work is processual in nature: Inspired by his experiences of piety as practiced by the common people, at the end of the 1960s, Thek found his way to spatial installations, which he developed and kept active for the duration of his exhibitions in conjunction with other artists: the rooms, set up as Gesamtkunstwerke, overall works of art, were changed and expanded and were to be entered and walked about in by the visitors. Paul Thek himself never emerged as a performance artist; the artistic action and potential usage of objects, however, form an important moment of his works, which have only come down to us in fragments. Contemporary artists are picking up this thread and using Kolumba as their artistic stage over the course of a day, expanding it to a lively space of action.
