spiegel magazin June 1965

Anlaß zu neuer Wohltätigkeit bot sich dem Godesberger Menschenfreund, als jüngst die Deutsche Bundesbahn bekanntgab, sie wolle den unrentablen Bahnhof Rolandseck an der Strecke Bonn-Koblenz abreißen oder verkaufen. Freilich konnte Wasmuth den alten Bahnhof, der 1856 als Mehrzweckbau mit Fest- und Ballsälen errichtet worden war, nicht kaufen, wohl aber pachten. Für 560 Mark Monatsmiete durfte er die Bahnstation zum Kunstzentrum zweckentfremden.

Der Galeriebesitzer und frühere Dekorateur will im Bahnhof Rolandseck Ateliers einrichten und Künstler seßhaft machen, die für ihn und die Philanthropie schaffen sollen. Die Bahnhofskünstler sollen Kinderspielplatz- und Kindergartenentwürfe fertigen, Sonaten und Gemälde produzieren – mit einem Teil des Erlöses will Wasmuth wiederum Kindernot lindern.

Prominente Künstler, so behauptet Wasmuth, haben dem Wohltats -Projekt ihre Mitarbeit und Förderung zugesichert: so der Maler Oskar Kokoschka, der Pantomime Marcel Marceau und der Pianist Stefan Askenase.

This album was recorded for a party of the pantomime Marcel Marceau.


“It is my pleasure to present you the famous Kenny Clarke-Francy Boland Ensemble who will play at our party  in Rolandseck. Tonight’s music and profits are in benefit of Arts and Music, which is a non-profit enterprise that will transform this old station into a center for the arts. I hope we’ll all meet again here in Rolandseck”

have a sunny weekend wherever

Out in the Streets

– Shangri – Las, Out in the Streets 1965

there are of course enough reasons to go out in the streets – anywhere, everywhere. But to attack the neighbourhood, or anything else without the real enemy is simple shody, sleazy, dinky….
