GLOW Museum Special - STOP LICHT

STOP LICHT gets you to reflect on something which is very commonplace for most people, the sense of sight. And yet sight is a singular process: the light falls on the eye and is transformed by the brain into an image, the process of visual perception. Light is a prerequisite in this process because we cannot see anything without it. Therefore light is very important for artists. After all, they create works which have to be seen. This applies to an even greater extent for artists who use light itself as a material to create their works of art.

A selection of artworks in which light has a central place as the source of what is seen was made for STOP LICHT . This can be done in many ways: the light can come from a screen or a lamp, it can be projected or come from activities using light. Various artists from the Netherlands and abroad reveal the possibilities offered by light for creating art. This is a chance to experience a quiet moment to reflect on this.
