Metelen (D): Blue peace lamb herd

17. April 2017

Everyone is important – all are equivalent.

Blauschaf Friedensherde

The Blue Shepherd is a global social art project by the artist Bertamaria Reetz, a symbol of mutual tolerance and peace. The authorized copies of the works are end-processed in cooperation with the non-profit workspace for people with disabilities of the social enterprises Cologne gGmbH in Cologne. This cooperation has played a significant role in the peace message.

The initiator of the convent Metelen Ingrid Hagen has now brought a peace herd with Blauschaf lambs to Metelen. For this she has been able to win over 150 godparents, who have their pastel pots grazed on the meadow of the St. Sophia House from 22 March to Easter Monday (17 April 2017). Whoever strolls along the river during this time can enjoy the ultramarin blue peace herd as a work of art.

From now on the blue peace lamb herd are allowed to leave the pasture at 10 o’clock every morning and gathered again at 7 pm. Anyone who wants to help with the herd raising can be in time in front of the entrance of the St.Sophienhaus.

On Easter Monday the lambs will be handed over to their godparents with a music program, which I will open with a sound performance for alphorn & live electronics. Further information about the Münsterländer Friedensherde can be found on the Internet pages of the Metelen Monastery. Continue reading…

Cologne: Evening of Mercy

23. September 2016

Domwallfahrt 2016At this year’s Cologne Cathedral pilgrimage (22th – 25th September 2016) will be held at 21 o’clock the evening of Mercy on 23 September.

The Cologne Cathedral is inviting visually and audibly in a special way to prayer and contemplation: images of the Hubble Space Telescope are projected in side the Cathedral, giving an impression of infinity and eternity of creation.

For this purpose a new work commissioned by Dorothée Hahne will be heard.

The composer uses original sounds and rhythms from space that pulsars (among other things taken up by Kepler teleskop and Effelsberg radio telescope) and other celestial phenomena are radiated.

The evening invites to let effect images and sounds from space to you and discover perfection and infinity of wonderful creation in oneself.

The complete program and further information can be found here: Continue reading…
