ArtLight'' - quarterly magazine for art and light

Happy 70th birthday Jenny Holzer!

The art of language on light bands

Holzer has conquered public space worldwide with her “Truisms” of light, her almost lapidary but critical statements on politics, economy and life. – Holzer sees herself as a political artist. She became enthusiastic about computer technology early on and since she first used LED technology in 1982 to make her texts public, light has become the main medium of her art. From then on, she could have her messages trickled down in huge LED writing strips or monumentally illuminated the silhouettes of cities all over the world. “I became addicted to electronics,” says Holzer about her attraction to working with LEDs. “I just like to look at them and let them do tricks.” → Read more

Power! Light!

Light – a political, social, ecological statement

The exhibition presents artistic positions which intentionally focus on such topics in which light has political, social, and/or ecological significance in a broader sense – and this against the backdrop of the current tension between luminous pollution due to the ever-increasing lighting and illumination mania on the one hand and, on the other hand, increasingly sophisticated lighting concepts with a focus on saving energy – and thus also in a figurative sense on the use of resources in general. → Read more

Daniel Hausig. Dynamic Light

The transformation of energy into light

The medium of Daniel Hausig (*1959, Kreuzlingen/CH) is light. Seeking for the inner glow of colour, the artist researches the field of luminescence and works on the implementation of light phenomena. In his site-specific interventions, Hausig soberly and objectively translates a space with its historicity, form, perceptual temperature and its own light into a vivid visual language. → Read more
