Pyramid Club is happy to welcome Cologne based mixed media artist collective LTK4, Rochus Aust, Verena Barié and Anna-Lea Weiand, for a three day residency and collaborative performance event. The three artists will be spending several days creating a new work with local musicians, and presenting this at a live performance event on Saturday 11th Feb.
LTK4 is a gallery curated by Rochus Aust & Verena Barié – 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.”
