There is that moment when the eyes make the first light, the afterimages that you see when you look into the light and discover a rainbow in the sky. Examples of times when light turns our lives. Even when the sun goes down light plays a major role in our lives. Think of your nightlight or the neon lights of shops.
In Lekker Licht you experience through visual arts, fashion design, design and music videos on provocative manner what light. Several artists show their own way how they interpret light. The exhibition focuses on the essential, socio-cultural, religious and technological significance of light.
