COL-ART (coordinated col-lective art) is an international (and now historic) art-movement, as are i.g. the Surrealisme, Pop-Art or the Astract Expressionism. A speciality of Col-Art is, that it brings together in one work at least two and often many different stiles, coordinating them. In more Col-Art is THE art-movement, who corresponds most to the ideals of a human, free and creative democracy. Dozens of Col-Art-realisations where produced in the last 45 years, worth to hang in museums, but still that art-direction is little known in the worldwide art-scene. Reason: During 34 years (from 1972 to 2006) we were actif outside the exclusive world of Visual Arts, proposing new ideas in the camps of pedagogy and therapy and publishing different books of that kind. Actually it looks as if COl-Art regains year for year more reputation, specifically in the international art-scene, and first museums are opening now their doors.

What does “Col-Art” means ?
First of all an abreviation for “col-lective coordinated art”:
Painters of very different stiles are coming together with their personal contribution in a group-painting, which is coordinated in it ́s composition.
The international and historic Col-Art-movement experiences these last five years a remarquable renaissance!

The first Col-Art-painting, realized 1968 in Zurich:
Three painters, three generations, three cultures, three stiles, each artist represented with three parts in the col-lective work.

In a few words the history of the Col-Art-movement
Since its birth 1968 in Zurich the Col-Art-movement finds great interest and remarquable successes in Geneva, Biel-Bienne, Berne, Basel, in Paris, Milano, New York, Mexico City, in Bielefeld, Cologne, Frankfurt, Munich, Hannover, Freiburg i.Br….
Within three years over 100 painters and hundreds of amateurs participate in the realization of Col-Art-works and from 1972 onwards the movement expands into the fields of pedagogy, therapy, free time,…. publishes several books, organizes hundreds of seminaires of creative communication in the group…
But it is only in 2006, that Col-Art finds (in Mexico) its renaissance as essential and promissing art-movement of our 21st century!“…Col-Art is THE pionier-movement of many collective achievements in the scene of modern art. Quite many of my artist-collegues found deeper contact under themselves through their participation in Col-Art-projects. .”
H.P.Kohler, Biel-Bienne, painter“…With Col-Art we are stronger !”
Omar Yamil, cultural centers of Arona

“Col-Art means to create together, to express oneself together, while you are listening to the inner music of the other, posed on the shared canvas in subtile touches and to respond to it. Col-Art is a large range of emotions, creating a dynamic harmony on the common work and between the authors. It’s a moment of happiness !”
Christelle Daniel, writer, Paris

“First I was sceptical, because a feeling of free creativity and the absence of social control are always terribly important to me. What was my experience with Col-Art?
Well, my singularity felt respected at a hundred percent and extended in a beautiful manner into the col-lectif. And that is a real plaesure !“ .
Janne Moragiannis, high school teacher, Berlin
