»Lunapark 2000: Lichtkunst aus der Sammlung Marli Hoppe-Ritter« | Gruppenausstellung mit Brigitte Kowanz
Museum Ritter, Waldenbuch, DE
October 18,  2015 – April 17, 2016

The exhibition “Lunapark 2000” in the museum’s ground floor gallery brings together a number of outstanding examples of light art from the Marli Hoppe-Ritter Collection with works by Angela Bulloch, Hans Kotter, Brigitte Kowanz, François Morellet, Maurizio Nannucci, Miriam Prantl, rosalie.

These radiant works have all been made since the turn of the millennium. They stand for the unflagging interest that artists have evinced to this day in the artistic potential of light. Ever since light art reached its initial peak in Europe around 1960, the artistic interest in light as a material has remained unflagging, the only difference being that the actual light sources and the methods the artists use have kept abreast of the technical advances. Thus not only neon tubes but in many cases LEDs are used today to produce surprising effects in combination with micro-controllers and computer-assisted electronics.
