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 Univeristy of Fine Arts (HBKsaar). This successful cooperation is now being followed up.
Both, students and teachers experiment under the artistic direction of Professor Daniel Hausig 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.
Switch II is an exhibition in cooperation with Saarbrücken University of Fine Arts (HBKsaar).
