news | Cologne’s Marsil Hotel is delighted to welcome Hollywood guests for the Autobahn casting and Späti56 event made by JÄGERMEISTER

This May Cologne’s Marsil Hotel is delighted to have been involved in the AUTOBAHN Hollywood project with Anthony Hopkins and Sir Ben Kingsley. The casting for a role in the blockbuster movie took place in the unique and enchanting ambience of the boutique hotel – lady of light, or should we perhaps say horizontal industry. Good job that Cologne locals aren’t strangers to the touchy or feely. Obviously we can’t give away more than that for the minute, but we’re sure …

news | Opinion making epicentres - GoSee at the Shigeru Takato exhibition opening at Sankt-Peter art church in Cologne, in time for the ARD Tagesschau re-design.

Last Saturday Germany saw the news on television in its new design for the first time. New sound, new look, new studio: after 15 years it was time for something new – a facelift worth 24 million Euros. To celebrate the occasion Cologne Kunstkirche (art church) Sankt Peter opened the exhibition of Shigeru Takato at midnight.

news | The Slow Fire - fantasies woven from flies, feathers and nylon. Fine Art Storytelling by Claire Morgan in her solo exhibition at Karsten Greve Galerie, Cologne

Claire Morgan (1980*) makes her fantastical installations from translucent and weightless materials such as dandelion seeds, fruit flies or shredded plastic sheeting that are then strung onto fine nylon thread. Her extremely fragmented, sometimes large-scale works are preoccupied with the transience of life and the basic knowledge of the artist working ‘against time’, her futile effort to halt the onset of decay that simultaneously arises with the artistic process of creation. To thi …

news | ‘Once, still and forever’ publication and group exhibition in Cologne at Projektraum Knut Osper – looking for traces with Jessica Backhaus

Using colour to create moods and specific painterly components are characteristic to Jessica Backhaus’ (*1970) work. The fleeting arrangements and lovingly composed colours of her fragile still life photography seem to reflect her feelings and inner states. But they do not only have a high recognition value because of their colourfulness. Jean Christophe Amman writes the following about her work: ‘Jessica Backhaus has a systematic view for the accidental, for things that are ‘j …

news | GoSee Quest : Dr. Werner Peters, Owner of the legendary Hotel Chelsea, Cologne and guest of honour at 1hour Restaurant at Hotel Marsil, on art, commerce and his kind communist

Cologne locals aren’t really famed for outstanding political involvement. Things are more comfortable on the River Rhine. Life always goes on somehow, and the less one has to with them, the better. Hip Berlin is far, far away and the long distance glamour of Hamburg is difficult for most to imagine. Weird introduction for someone like Dr. Werner Peters? Not really as he’s proof that there are of course exceptions in this city….sorry, interview not available in English! …
