    Description :

    The Krefeld congregation has made itself a name far beyond the boundaries through its engagement with contemporary art. More than 30 works of autonomous artists are permanently installed in the church room, in the baptistery, in the porch, in the adjoining rooms and a park-like meadow behind the community centre.

    The collection consists of art works of about 25 artists, including big names such as Joseph Beuys, Felix Droese, Klaus Rinke, Ulrich Rückriem and Günther Uecker. Represented are also two Japanese artists, a South African woman, a Spaniard and a Canadian etc. Only four art works were created especially for the church: Altar (Ulrich Rückriem), Ambo (Klaus Becker / Ulrich Rückriem), Stoup (Klaus Rinke) and an altar in the Blessed Sacrament Chapel (Magdalena Jetelová). The rest of the art work have been created without ecclesiastical order, and most of them have no basis of a religious, biblical or otherwise religiously shaped theme.
