Flexible lighting technology for temporary exhibitions
Since 2016, for the »World Poet – Friedrich Rückert« temporary exhibition, mawa has illuminated the special exhibition space of the Schweinfurt Art Museum.
The rotatable and tiltable spotlights from the seventies 70’s series are able to be positioned flexibly along electrified tracks above the exhibition space.
The museum for modern and contemporary art dedicated an exhibition in his memory, to the son and honored citizen of the city, on the occasion of his 150th memorial anniversary. The poet, linguist and founder of the German academic field of Oriental Studies worked proficiently in over 40 languages and, amongst other works, translated parts of the Koran in German.
Excellent color reproduction of the spotlights allow the colors of the exhibition to appear especially lively. They mirror preferences of the Biedermeier period and symbolize the phases of the Poet’s life. Light green represents the spring of youth, gold, his periods of success, and bordeaux, the last lonely decades.
The exhibition space, a former indoor pool from the 1930’s, has an impressive nearly 10 meter high ceiling. The powerful lighting technology from mawa easily bridges the resulting distance to the exhibits.
