Following on the experiments with light, movement, and technical image design in the 1910s and 1920s, the representatives of the European Zero avant-garde incorporated light in singularly different ways into their paintings, installations, and sculptures. Artists from the cultural centers of Düsseldorf, Amsterdam, Paris, and Milan used refracting grids, reflections, mirrored light, rotating lamps and kinetic light objects. In parallel to this, painters in the abstract-lyrical reduced style worked on the interweaving of light and artistic space in their graphical works and paintings. In the 1970s and 1980s, the field was expanded to include neon objects, abstract monitor images, conceptual light direction or temporary installations in public spaces and in nature. This wide spectrum and experimental approach can be seen in contemporary international art. Here highly individual solutions and use of contemporary technologies come into play. Around 55 artists from 15 different countries and 110 works of art between 1950 and today make up the exhibitions.
