Bernd Arnold: Das Kolner Heil. Fotografien von 1986 - 1996

Bernd Arnold: Das Kolner Heil. Fotografien 1986-1996 From 1986 until 1996 Bernd Arnold photographed the hermetic and hierarchical world of Cologne's cathedral clergy - a world marked by merit and mercy, sorrow and hope, sin and redemption. His pictures examine a highly self-contained salvation-system and its inherent power structures which, to all appearance, have not been effected by major developments of this century. Borger's theory calls up the question, as to what extent this specifically local form of Roman-Catholic picty has served to fundamentally shape the identity of the city of Cologne as well as of its inhabitants. copy; Christoph Schaden, 1997
