This year’s exhibition is concerned with the issues most important to Adolf Luther (1912 - 1990): the INTEGRATION OF LIGHT AND SPACE. This is manifested impressively in large room installations of concave mirror objects (for example, to mark the occasion of the 1972 Olympic Games in Munich).

Since the late 1960’s Luther experimented with laser light and used smoke for making light visible. Adolf Luther demonstrated this impressively in his installations, such as the "Fokussierender Raum" (Focusing Space) of 1968 and the "Laserraum" (Laser Space) of 1970/72.

In the “laser space”, laser beams gather on a slowly rotating plate of Plexiglass, which is connected to a flat mirror. They dissolve into linear rays, which are reflected on the walls by concave mirror objects and articulate the room in a rhythmic and dance-like manner. It is an "energetic sculpture." Luther referred to it as an ethereal structure of mutability and transience.

With his light and mirror objects and his installations, Adolf Luther breaks through the traditional notions of closed, rigid and empty space and provides a spatial experience in which light acts as a moving element, creating a world of continuity and variability.
