More Light! The Significance of Light in Art

Date: Saturdays, till 20 January, 2018

Time: 4:00pm-5:00pm

Location:  Fire Station Education Studio #4




To see art, we need light. Every child knows that. But can we make art out of light? In this exhibition, we encounter many artists who love to experiment with light. Otto Piene impresses us with his experimental handling of the elements of air, fire and light. Heinz Mack shows us prints with everyday materials, and his friend Günther Uecker uses nails to leave traces of light and shadow on images. We adventurously discover photographs by Thomas Ruff and Annette Kelm that wouldn’t exist without light. While walking around the gallery we observe and discuss, note down our experiences in our research journal, and subsequently make our own artistic light experiments in the workshop.
