Ganzfeld “Aural” by James Turrell opens at the Jewish Museum in Berlin


James Turrell (b. 1943, Los Angeles) uses light and indeterminate space—not objects or images—to extend and enhance perception. His work has been the subject of over 160 solo exhibitions worldwide since 1967, including the three-venue museum exhibition presented concurrently at the Guggenheim Museum in New York, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, and the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston in 2013.

James Turrell’s Ganzfeld “Aural” is on display at the Jewish Museum in Berlin, marking the first time one of Turrell’s Ganzfeld pieces has been shown in the city. Installed in the Museum Garden, “Aural” invites visitors to “enter a zone of borderless space that reveals neither the light source nor the dimensions of the environment.”

James Turrell’s Ganzfeld “Aural” will remain on view until 30 September 2018 at the Jewish Museum in Berlin.
