DRAIFLESSEN Collection: MADE REALITIES - Photographs by Thomas Demand, Philip-Lorca diCorcia, Andreas Gursky and Jeff Wall

The exhibition lighting by KOBER Lichtplaner for MADE REALITIES is based on the basic idea of ​​the museum white cube. The very uniform basic lighting is provided by a diffuse light ceiling with a color temperature of 4,000K. In addition, the natural drop in light intensity in the lower area of ​​the walls was compensated for by soft oval floodlights in order to offer the works of art a background that was as neutral and homogeneous as possible as a "stage". With another layer of light as a level of perception, the individual exhibits were subtly accentuated in a contrast ratio of 3:1 with museum spotlights (darklight lens technology with frame projection lens) in order to create brilliance and visually distinguish the exhibits from the flat by light and the slight shadow of the frame in the lower area to emphasize the wall plane. At 3,500K, the color temperature of the spotlights was chosen to be slightly warmer than the light color of the daylight ceiling in order to accentuate the art on the one hand through higher illuminance and on the other through this subtle color temperature shift.

Each spotlight was carefully aligned in the so-called "museum angle" so that reflections of the lighting on the exhibits do not impair the impressions of the museum visitors from any viewing angle.
