For the third time since 2016 the light artwork Terminal of former fellow Karolina Halatek will be on display on the Rathausplatz in Gerlingen. From 25.10. to 25.11.2019 the artwork invites passers-by to take a moment to step out of what is known and mundane into a new unexpected dimension of light. Entering the tunnel-like space of dazzling, bright white light the visitors find an opportunity to contemplate and focus on their own sense of self and to forget about their daily life for a moment.
