James Turrell Light Installation

Stunning displays of light and color

Words By Erika Clugston

Date: Friday – Sunday
Venue: Dorotheenstädtischer Friedhof I
Time: Half an hour before sunset

Make a trip to the Dorotheenstädtischer Cemetery for a splendid sunset-inspired light installation. Cool blues fade into brilliant pinks and soothing purples inside the memorial chapel. The permanent light installation by the renowned U.S. artist, James Turrell, is perfectly timed with sunset to create a mysteriously spiritual experience in neon. Attend the guided art tour every Friday through Sunday half an hour before sunset. The English introduction takes place every Friday and Sunday. Check the cemetery’s website for the exact time of sunset on the day you wish to visit.
