DIE BLAUE NACHT 2018 – 100 % Art and Culture with One Ticket!

Many elements of Blaue Nacht 2018, Nuremberg ’s Long Night of Art and Culture on 4 and 5 May, are already confirmed now, e.g. the theme: Horizons.

Dan Reeder, American artist and musician, as well as an institution on the Nuremberg art scene – will use his mischievous, cryptic and sometimes bizarre motifs to design the light projection on the castle walls. The Slide Media troupe from Barcelona will be responsible for the projection show on the New City Hall, supported by Philipp Geist, Berlin, who has already played to enthusiastic viewers at the same place during Blaue Nacht 2017. The giant luminous puppet by DUNDU (Stuttgart) awaits visitors in the KulturDREIeck Lessingstraße. The application stage for the international Blaue Nacht Art Competition will end in mid-December, and in January, a jury will select 12 projects for extraordinary and unusual locations in the Old Town. And finally, the 70 institutions participating in Blaue Nacht, from the State Theatre, Germanisches Nationalmuseum, Neues Museum Nürnberg, Jazzstudio, club stereo, to all the churches, many arts associations and galleries, the imperial castle and various cinemas right through to the municipal library and city archives, Ballettförderzentrum  [ballet centre] / Mind and Dance, Nuremberg Municipal Museums and others are already busy planning their programmes.

Blaue Nacht will present you with quite a few surprises!

Those who want to experience all of this or at least most of it should give him/herself and perhaps others the present of a ticket! For after all, Christmas is coming!
