    The invention of the light bulb is an achievement of the 19th century which, particularly in the pulsating metropolises of the world, put an end to the natural alternation of day and night. Glaringly illuminated filling stations, shopping centers, shift work and night clubs are just some aspects of this development.

     

    The night without boundaries is the focus of this major exhibition, presenting works from early modernism to the present in pursuit of the question of how the natural order of bright and dark, of activity and sleep has been turned on its head, how perception and everyday routine change fundamentally and intermediate worlds are created. In pictures, sculptures and installations, visitors can experience how the twilight can inspire the imagination and how the masquerade of nocturnal actors is brightly exposed in the glare of artificial light.
