Since 2004, cultural, scientific, philosophical and social issues and the Christian tradition of the Gospel have been meeting in the Dialograum Kreuzung at St. Helena, a unique church space in Bonn's Nordstadt. The empty space – the church is cleared except for the immovable white marble altar in the centre – is filled with liturgical, artistic, performative and discursive dialogue formats that give space to a wide variety of perspectives and realise diverse forms of expression. The dialogue space is heterotopic, a »many-place«, because the once unambiguous church place comes into contact with that which commonly had no place in church and liturgy. Now this church space can be touched, moved, questioned, haunted.
