“Opened at the end of May 2001 in the former Linden Brewery in Unna the Centre for International Light Art Unna is the first and only museum worldwide dedicated exclusively to Light Art. The exhibition area is fascinating in its own right and a highly effective setting for the works of art. The outward sign of the museum - visible from afar - is a 52 m high chimney; and deep under the earth are 2.400 m2 of exhibition space for this contemporary genre of art. The former brewery, which between 1852 and 1979 produced the famous Linden-Adler Pilsener is today part of the Ruhr District´s "Route of Industrial Heritage". In the labyrinthine corridors, cold storage cellars and fermenting vats of the former brewery the artists created a mysterious world of light and shadow.”
