Nancy Holt: Circles of Light - Experimente mit Sound, Bild und Objekten 1966 – 1986

In the organizer's words:

For five decades, Nancy Holt has been exploring how we perceive our environment and try to understand our place on the surface of this planet. With Circles of Light, the Gropius Bau will be showing the artist's most comprehensive survey exhibition in Germany to date from March 2024. The exhibition includes film, video, photography, sound works, concrete poetry, sculptures and expansive installations as well as drawings and documentaries from over 25 years.

In her practice, Nancy Holt rethought site-specific installations and working with natural and artificial light. She addressed ecological aspects early on, incorporating the Earth's rotation, astronomy, time and place into her sculptures - challenging us to look beyond what we think we know. Holt's working methods will be given a special presence in the exhibition at the Gropius Bau through texts and photographs by the artist.

"Over the years, these technical systems have become indispensable to our daily lives, but they are usually hidden behind walls or underground and relegated to the realm of the unconscious. It's hard to admit that we are almost completely dependent on them." - Nancy Holt
