Dark Matter

Light, space and sound

The sound and light installations at the Dark Matter permanent exhibition are interactive and constantly changing. These multimedia works of Berlin artist and designer Chris Bauder have found a permanent home in an old factory building in Lichtenberg.

Bauder has already made a name for himself worldwide with his temporary audiovisual installations. The founder of the design studio WHITEvoid designs the light art installations and cooperates with top artists from the electronic music scene for sound and live shows. Recent projects include the multimedia and expansive sound and light installations Deep Web and Skalar. 

Cooperation with innovative partners

Dark Matter also completely immerses you in a world of rhythm, sound, light, colour and reflections. By cooperating with innovative technology partners, DARK MATTER will continue to develop and visualise new creative ideas.

Seven immersive rooms

Seven rooms each offer a different experience, with some of the computer-controlled technologies interacting with visitors. This makes every visit a personalised and unique experience. Each individual sculpture transcends space and transforms its environment into a vibrant whole that is sensuous, poetic and emotional.
