Videoart feature
Rhineland artists

On 01 March 2020, WOW Jubilee 2020 took place at Halle Zollstock Cologne. Letitia Gaba and Wilfried arrived already on 12h in order to prepare the even starting on 14h.

It was as a nice improvised event, as Wilfried had in mind. Some of the local artists joint. – Irena Paskali, a media artist living in Cologne, but originating from Macedonia. She had participated for the first time already in 2001, but Wilfried had never her met before, Enoh Lienemann, living in Krefeld, participating in Refugee Film Collection since 2017, and Kai Welf Hoyme also living in Cologne, who participated in CologneOFF in 2010 for the first time, he was the only one whom he had met previously several times.

projection of the video program featuring artists from the Rhineland region
It was Sunday afternoon, and some young families from the quater arround Halle Zollstock came to have a coffee at the bar. Obviously many visitors were not accustomed to take a seat and watch the video programs running on the installed laptops, on the other hand when the even started on 14 h, the sun was shining and this had a negative influence on the image quality of the projection. Later, when it started to rain, the light condition were perfect. The local newspapers – Kölner Stadtanzeiger” and “Kölnische Rundschau” had sent their reporters who were interviewing Wilfried and Letitia Gaba. Although the outside temperature was quite reasonable, but standing more than four hours on the icecold concrete ground, at the end, on 19h nobody could stand the cold anylonger!
