In 2016 the museum presented Switch, an exhibition which staged a selection of works that were created in the "Light and Intermedia" studio at the Saarbrücken University of Fine Arts (HBKsaar). This successful cooperation is now being followed up.

Artists and teachers, all in some way connected to the HBKSaar, under the artistic direction of Professor Daniel Hausig experiment in SWITCH II with physical light in drawing, painting, sculpture, installation and performance. Key aspect of this exhibition is the versatility and complexity of light as a medium and material.

The sculptural installations in Switch II are backlit, transilluminated, projected, self-lit, dispersed, filtered, split, allowed to grow, illuminated, controlled and composed. Materials are extracted from their cycles of building and discarding. The concepts range from situations of shadow theatre, reminiscent of Plato's Cave allegory, to the radical super-saving lamp with sea sparkles in discarded lightbulbs.

The exhibition can be visited online as a virtual tour as from May 16.
