At a time when blank spots have by and large disappeared from maps, “wilderness” has returned in art. The Schirn Kunsthalle Frankfurt has dedicated an extensive theme-based exhibition to this recurring fascination.



Contemporary Light Art in 21st-Century Germany

Germany is a “Light Art landscape” that radiates internationally. In its exhibition, Spotlights: Contemporary Light Art in 21st-Century Germany, the Kunstmuseum Celle presents sixty national and international artists. All work with light, and are all connected somehow to Germany, either through ancestry, residence, education, or professorships. This extensive catalogue does more than just document the exhibition; it offers a wide range of snapshots featuring contemporary Light Art production, its first-class quality, and impressive complexity.
