Alert of the month: Richter's window

6 July 2015

The Cologne Cathedral is the symbol of the city; even from afar you can see the two fierce towers of this imposing building. One of the old stained-glass windows of this UNESCO world heritage has been lost in World War II. The Cologne-based artist Gerhard Richter (Leipzig, 1932) is fascinated by color and light. With 11 863 handmade pieces of colored glass, he made a new window. He placed these pieces at random; chance is his theme and his method.
If you do go to Germany and visit Cologne, go and see it. Especially on a sunny day at 12 noon. With the sun right into the window of the south transept is, theses glasses become life.
