Pale shades – Dark shades

A project of Jens Pohlmann, Frank Riesenbürger and Prof. Dr. Jürgen Blume

The red brick building of the listed church by Wiesbaden architect Rainer Shell, with its woven tapestry in shades of red and blue, invites contemplation. The effect lighting, in pale and darker shades, gives the room an ever-changing character, allowing other features to emerge. Church musician Jürgen Blume provides the corresponding musical accompaniment to the illumination, on the organ, which stands on the gallery, on the grand piano to the right, and on the harpsichord to the left in the chancel. The styles alternate from Baroque to Modern; literature and improvisation interchange. The theme PALE SHADES – DARK SHADES captures timbres as well as lighting effects. Every evening, brief texts on light and enlightenment from religious and philosophical writings will be read aloud and discussed.

19th March: City councilor Paul-Gerhard Weiß: The light of reason. Texts from the Age of Enlightenment
20th March: Dr. Thomas Regehly - Goethe, West-East Divan
21st March: Dr. Kirsten Prinz - Jakob Böhme
22nd March: Pastor Thomas Jourdan - spiritual texts.
