The exhibition and music project King Georg | DAS HERZ BRENNT IN SEINEM EIGENEN GESICHT commemorates a legend of Cologne's nightlife in the form of an exhibition. Presented are large-scale foil works, photographic works and spatial installations, which were created in the rooms of the club bar King Georg. Every Friday and Saturday Mouches Volantes shows Music by Friends from 8 pm.

The legendary Cologne club bar King Georg was run by André Sauer for ten years, from 2008-2018. The hallmark of the club was the original décor of the former animation establishment from 1968 - and of course the outstanding programme. André Sauer and his team created a unique place full of creativity, a perfect setting for people to feel at home, to celebrate music, culture and community. At the end of 2018, Sauer invited artists who had often been guests at the King Georg to artistically explore the extraordinary ambience and special atmosphere of the location and thus capture memories of the club in their works. The resulting artworks are now being presented for the first time in the exhibition Das Herz brennt in seinem eigenen Gesicht (The Heart Burns in Its Own Face) at Mouches Volantes, curated by André Sauer.

A part of the incomes will be donated to the organisation Colgone Cares  in order to help People in Ukraine.

Curated by André Sauer

Auction: Tuesday, 23. August 7 PM at Klubbar King Georg, Suderman Str. 2, Cologne / Germany
