If you want to be part of it, you have to be quick: From March 1 to 3 we offer a creative Ferienstegreif with a workshop atmosphere. Together with our guest researcher Luigiemanuele Amabile, who conceived the Stegreif, you will trace three churches of Gottfried Böhm, namely those of St. Gertrud and Christi Auferstehung (both in Cologne) and those of the famous "Mariendom" (Velbert-Neviges).
For this purpose, on day 1 you will visit, photograph and draw the churches on site. On day 2 and 3 you will compare your collected impressions with provided plan material and transform them into analytical drawings and "spatial devices". Luigiemanuele Amabile will also introduce you to the fascinating relationship of the sacred to the urban in Böhm's oeuvre in the form of a talk.
