In the Spotlight of the Night Life in the Gloom
The invention of the electric light bulb in the 19th century
put an end to the natural alternation of day and night.
Brightly lit filling stations and shopping centres, shift work
and night clubs are just some facets of this altered rhythm
of life in artificial light. The unbounded night stands at the
centre of this large-scale exhibition with works from early
Modernism to the present. In pictures, sculptures and installations,
visitors can experience how the twilight fuels the
imagination and the masquerade of nocturnal actors is dazzlingly
manifested in the glare of artificial illumination
The artist Alexandra Ranner participates on the exhibition with a video installation piece called "Blissful Men".

100 paintings, objects, and films from around 40 international contemporary artists invite us to intuitively approach art from an emotional perspective.
The exhibition FEELINGS seeks to encourage this direct dialogue between artwork and viewer in order to stimulate an intense emotional engagement. The works exhibited are characterized by enigmatic motifs and atmospheric visual spaces. Joy, excitement, anger, revulsion, sadness, and numerous other emotional reactions may ensue upon viewing the works. The choice of exhibits is subjective; the art historical context and explanatory wall texts have been deliberately omitted.
