Werkraumschau Licht

Werkraum Bregenzerwald, Andelsbuch

– 26 May 2018



The second Werkraumschau in the Werkraum Bregenzerwald is dedicated to a physical phenomenon that we take for granted, and without which life on Earth would not be possible: light. The protagonists of the staging of shadows, artificial light, and daylight are objects created by the Voralberger Handwerksbetriebe, who are offered the Werkraumschau as a stage every year.


The idea that light is not just light is suggested to the visitors to the current Werkraumschau. In the building designed by Peter Zumthor, visitors can experience both the natural light that enters through the glass facade and changes with the passing of the day and seasons, and also artificial light from stage spotlights emphasising the main points and creating atmospheric effects. As a result, attention is drawn to the relevance of light in designing rooms and the “palette of light craft”. At the heart of this setting, the Werkraum Bregenzerwald members’ creations will be exhibited, which become a part of the show themselves, gaining an additional layer of effect through shadowplay, for example, or particularly accentuated surfaces.

The scientific background to light is also taken into account with interactive stations. All those interested can sharpen their perception, carry out experiments themselves, and learn about various technologies. In addition, there is a special light workshop with activities for children on different themes.

Atelier Gassner, a graphics and communications bureau in Vorarlberg, has been commissioned to carry out the design of the exhibition this year.
