Licht Kunst Kinetik (Light Art Kinetics), 2013 Museum Ritter Poster
"Drawing on select works from the Marli Hoppe-Ritter Collection, this exhibition gives a number of keen insights into the broad field of European kinetic and light art since the 1950s. The two major focuses of the show are the classics of luminokinetic art, including numerous works from the Italian Arte Programmata movement, as well as young, new approaches to an art form that above all fascinates by the way it lights up, vibrates, oscillates and rotates.
Light art and kinetic art have long since ensured their place in art history. These currents had their initial zenith in Europe around 1960 when ZERO and GRAV, as well as the groups T and N – all art groups that sought an aesthetic marriage of art and technology – almost simultaneously entered the scene. Light, space, time, rhythm and dynamism were the artists’ themes; fluorescent light tubes, electric motors and mechanical drives were their means. And even today the shining, motile works from that period remain outstanding examples of an art that unites the possibilities of technology with a non-objective, purist aesthetic." -- Curators Marli Hoppe-Ritter and Dr. Barbara Willert
