Spring 2022 International Residency: LTK4


AF is pleased to welcome our first international artists in residence for 2022.

LTK4 is a gallery curated by Rochus Aust – situated in a tower of an old church in Cologne, it works with a series of ever-changing international guest curators.
“At LTK4, the sound-based analogue and digital arts are understood as open forms of professional artists of every genre with and without genre avoidance.”

Rochus Aust/Köln · trumpet/installation · www.rochusaust.de
Rochus Aust is a spacewalker. As an installation and sound artist, media performer and musician, his stagings of public spaces cross genres and borders. The starting material for his utopian places are set pieces from (still) present everyday life.

Verena Barié/Köln · recorder/mixed media · www.verenabarie.com
Verena Barié is a media artist, composer and curator and works at the intersection of music, new media and performance art.
Her project FRACHTART exemplifies her curiosity about art formats that give supposedly archaic structures a stage for reflection in order to amaze, amuse, amaze and (most importantly) encourage artists and audiences to think along.

Levin Eric Zimmermann/Essen · resonance-objects/electronics · www.levinericzimmermann.eu
Raised in the Black Forest, Levin Eric Zimmermann studies composition at Folkwang University of the arts, Essen, Germany. He developed a distinct interest in too long & too slow performances in the course of multiple study visits to Indonesia. In his music he examines precise intonation & algorithmic methods. Emphasizing a hypercultural aesthetic, he loves to collect musical instruments, ancient radios & other real & virtual (sound) objects from contradictory time-space positions that can become part of his work.

The four artists will be collaborating with local practitioners towards performances on the 14th and 15th of October.
