Nancy Holt: Circles of Light

The exhibition "Circles of Light" at Berlin's Gropius Bau includes film, video, photography, sculptures and room-sized installations as well as drawings and documentaries by US artist Nancy Holt.

Over five decades, Nancy Holt's work has been concerned with 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 present the artist's most comprehensive exhibition in Germany to date, beginning in March 2024. In her practice, Nancy Holt rethought site-specific installations and work with natural and artificial light. She addressed ecological aspects early on and incorporated the earth's rotation, astronomy, and time and place into her sculptures - repeatedly challenging us to look beyond what we think we know.
