Naturhistorisches Museum

Nightwatch. Visual conjunction of art and astronomy

The exhibition "nightwatch" presents works by the artists Angela Schwank, Akelei Sell, and Ulrich Werner in juxtaposition with astronomical photographs, drawings, and scientific graphics. The selection of images focuses attention on the aesthetic quality of structures. Visitors are invited to discover formal and aesthetic parallels and to relate them to contextual associations.

The presentation is based on the idea of the cabinets of arts and curiosities (“Wunderkammern”) during the late Renaissance and Baroque, which were designed to convey a world view from a variety of views. Objects of history, art, and science assembled in showcases make visual and thematic references to the sculptures on the wall. The eponymous computer-generated photo "nightwatch" stands for an inner perception of the night.
