James Turrell is regarded as one of the central American artists of the postwar period, and he achieved international fame
with his works of light art. As the probably best-known representative of this artistic genre, he has devoted himself to working
with light since the 1960s. He makes space for light itself and builds spaces made of light that seem to float. His investigations
pertain to perception, to conscious seeing, and to opening up.In doing so, light is the tool and also the content of his art: I use no objects in my work because I do not want light
to brighten material; I much rather want to materialize light itself. That is why there is no object. The objective is perceptionthat
is the actual object.Lecture on the occasion of the exhibition opening mehr licht. Targetti Light Art Collection im MAK and the inauguration of
the permanent installation on the MAK facade, the MAKlite.
