Domfenster at Köln Dom

Domfestner is a 20 meter high stained glass window at the Köln Dom Cathedral based on Gerhard Richter’s 1970 abstract work titled “4096 Farben” or 4096 Colors for those like me that don’t know German… this artwork features, squares of colors rendered from the color palette of a printing ink manufacturer and you can see it in a previous post. Deconstruction of iconography are the keywords here but it works refreshingly well at the church, it is one of those few places where you can see contemporary art in a Gothic church. You can see more of this window on flickr
