Museum der Moderne Mönchsberg
Salzburg, , AT Austria

The "preview" exhibition at the newly erected Museum der Moderne Salzburg is curated in collaboration with the Thyssen-Bornemisza Art Contemporary Foundation (T-B A21), Vienna. A substantial part of the film, multimedia and light installations are drawn from the T-B A21 collection. Other lenders are Zumtobel Staff, Dornbirn, and Thaddaeus Ropac Gallery, Salzburg. Paris. The exhibition "ein-leuchten" features different aspects of light - an incandescent or nocturnal material, evanescent and substantial: Light used for the projection of videos and filmic works, light in complex media and sculptural environments, light as source for brightness in neon and LED works, and light in its atmospheric condition.

"Light" in this sense is derived from the Greek concept of "phainomenon" - the appearance - something which is emerging in the process of becoming and metamorphosis. For a brief period of time, "ein-leuchten" articulates the stage of emergence and appearance before the dimension of being and continuity sets in.

Works included are by Darren Almond, Siegrun Appelt, John M Armleder, Ecke Bonk, Angela Bulloch, Olafur Eliasson, Tracey Emin, Sylvie Fleury, Carsten Höller, Jenny Holzer, Teresa Hubbard / Alexander Birchler, Christoph Keller, Brigitte Kowanz, Won Ju Lim, Tim Noble & Sue Webster, Finnbogi Pétursson, Jack Pierson, Pipilotti Rist, Julian Rosefeldt, Charles Sandison, Diana Thater, Slaven Tolj, Michel Verjux, and Cerith Wyn Evans.

The exhibition also deals with the nature of human perception in the age of technology and the experience of perceiving that is determined by multi-layered visual stimuli. Artists working with light and media construct places and create experiences where seeing takes place, seeing beyond the seen, activating a perception beyond the system of Euclidean planes and coordinates, infused by images, memories, and histories. On a total of 2.600 m2 of exhibition space, video-installations with narrative and interactive elements, text related neon works, sculptural as well as pictorial light works using light fixtures and bulbs, as well as installations and atmospheric artworks are displayed.

"ein-leuchten", curated by Agnes Husslein-Arco and Francesca von Habsburg is a festive gesture expressing lightness and inventiveness and celebrating the inauguration of the new Museum der Moderne Salzburg Mönchsberg, providing local and international visitors the opportunity to experience the new museum spaces as well as a broad range of art works by a varied selection of international artists.
