Museum visits

Discover our current exhibition with all your senses, as well as part of our unique and top-class permanent collection. The encounter between historical industrial architecture and contemporary art is staged in a fascinating and spectacular way. In addition to the extraordinary size of the artworks, "hyper" also refers to the latest, innovative multimedia technologies that the exhibiting artists use for their light sculptures. Christine Sciulli, Squidsoup, Julius Stahl, Philip Vermeulen and Giny Vos create immersive, partly walk-in installations of superlatives.

Tickets available one week in advance.

James Turrell's colourful lighting experience Skyspace comes to life during sunset. Natural and artificial light meet at dusk and mutate the sky into a colour surface that seems to close down the room from the sky and yet is the sky itself.

The art work entitled 'Third Breath', which has been especially designed for Unna, links two perceptual rooms, Skyspace and Camera Obscura, and allows visitors to get a completely new visual experience.

Tickets available two weeks in advance.
