PANTA RHEI

Everything is in motion.
Light art in the historic waterworks

The exhibition’s title is ‘panta rhei’. With these words, Heraclitus is said to have summed up his teaching: “No one can step into the same river twice, for everything flows and nothing remains.” Two and a half thousand years after the Greek philosopher’s death, his lesson is relevant as ever. All is in flux and things are ever changing, each moment gone in the blink of an eye. Man is part of an eternal cycle of coming and going, birth and death as glimpses of evolution in the continuous becoming of time and space. → Read more

PURE II

Phenomena of viewing II

The concept of the exhibition is based on different levels of painting. All artworks relate to the wall and reveal their origins in painting. They have reduced their vocabulary of form to basic geometric structures, because the material they are based on not only serves as material equipment, but colour, form and light appear as central compositional elements as well. → Read more

Ahrenshoop > Elisabeth von Eicken und Paul Müller-Kaempff

Capturing the light in the moment

In 1889, during a travel to the Baltic Sea, Paul Mueller-Kaempff became acquainted with Ahrenshoop. Shortly afterwards he moved to the remote fishing village on the Darß and opened the St. Lucas painting school in 1894. The painter Elisabeth von Eicken also moved to Ahrenshoop in 1894 and had a villa built here. It was the pristine nature on the peninsula chain of the Vorpommersche Boddenlandschaft and the light there that fascinated both painters. → Read more

Power! Light!

Light > political, social, ecological positions in art

At the beginning of the modern age, artificial light was considered a symbol of modern life. Even though life without artificial light is unthinkable today, it is also associated with light pollution and energy waste, despite technical advancements and undeniable benefits. The exhibition and publication project Macht! Licht! exhibition and publication project at the Kunstmuseum Wolfsburg presents artistic positions that consciously focus on political, ecological or social statements and critically comment on the use of light – and thus also, in a figurative sense, on the use of resources. → Read more
