3. Dortmund: Phoenix des Lumières Entry Ticket
The Phoenix des Lumières is located in a former puddling and rolling mill in the city of Dortmund. Culturespaces aims to bring the site back to life by creating a large digital art center that will present major immersive exhibitions. The unique architecture of the buildings is a showcase that highlights the works of the most famous artists in the history of art and provides visitors with a uniquely immersive experience. The Phoenix des Lumières opened to the public on 28 January 2023 with the exhibitions ‘Gustav Klimt: Gold and Colour’ and ‘Hundertwasser, in the Wake of the Vienna Secession’. Currently, you can experience the unique, modern exhibition of the famous works by revolutionary artists Gustav Klimt and Friedensreich Hundertwasser as well as the unique journey of discovery of the universe in the "Cosmos: An Infinite Journey" exhibition. With one of the entry tickets, wander through the renovated industrial space known as the Phoenix des Lumières. Let yourself be swept away by vivid colours and creative genius. Begin your immersive Klimt and Hundertwasser experience at the historical site of the Phoenix des Lumières. This former steel mill, once known as the Phoenixhalle, has been transformed to house a digital art center. Enter the 3,000m² building and marvel at the re-imagined space. Continue walking through the exhibit as you appreciate how the space has been brought back to life. As the paintings from Gustav Klimt's golden phase envelop you, admire the groundbreaking art style of this Vienna Secessionist. Then, gaze in wonder at Hundertwasser's kaleidoscope of moving color. "Cosmos: An Infinite Journey" takes visitors into a labyrinth of stars, planets, moons, and supernovae. A unique journey of discovery begins in the middle of the tropical rainforest at a space center in French Guyana and takes you to the deepest reaches of space, far beyond our own solar system. After launching from Earth, guests will travel alongside rovers and probes across the canyons of Mars, delve into the heart of Jupiter, glide over the rings of Saturn, and find themselves amidst stunning solar flares. The audience is captivated by the images and the accompanying music and embarks on an unprecedented space adventure thanks to original images from space, including those from the French space agency CNES.
