DIE LETZTE MESSE

EIN GOTTESDIENST FÜR DIE SCHLIESSENDE KIRCHE
as part of WEST OFF
Performance

Die letzte Messe is an attempt and an offer to oneself and to others who are faithful, to alibi worshippers and inveterate critics, to shelter one’s own faith, to leave the church behind once and for all by making a real and clear cut, to furtively or openly rejoice in its end and to finally cease searching for God in buildings and institutions.
