Crystals - highly symbolic, pure and mythical. They have always held a great attraction for artists.

The publication accompanying the exhibition illustrates how the light stone has been perceived from Romanticism to the present day: Caspar Wolf discovers a divine order in the mountain cliffs; modern architects like Bruno Taut use the crystal as a model of utopian 'light buildings'. Artists such as Lyonel Feininger, Adolf Hölzel and Paul Klee deconstruct their paintings into crystalline structures. For Joseph Beuys, the crystal becomes the cold pole of analytical thought, while Meret Oppenheim discovers magical elements in it.
