During the trade fair duo imm cologne and LivingKitchen, Koelnmesse presented the light installation “Time Drifts Cologne II” by the Berlin-based light artist Philipp Geist. The installation could be seen in the vicinity of Cologne Cathedral on 15 and 16 January 2017 from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. This event was an extension of the artist’s media performance “Time Drifts Cologne” on New Year’s Eve 2016 into the 2017 trade fair year.
“I’m delighted that we have been able to prolong the performance of Philipp Geist and thus enable even more people to experience this spectacular work of art as part of imm cologne,” said Gerald Böse, President and Chief Executive Officer of Koelnmesse GmbH. “Through this installation we would like to showcase the theme of light, which is very important for us. We also want to send another positive message to the world from the city of Cologne.”
