Die Blaue Nacht 

Nuremberg Old Town – Topic: Risk

Buy tickets

Dear visitors,
 
Risk – the topic for the 2020 Blaue Nacht – is part of our lives. It is associated with adventure, setting out without being certain of the outcome. In this sense, Nuremberg’s bid for the title of European Capital of Culture 2025 is a risk. It is only in September 2020 that we will know whether we have achieved our objective, that of winning the second round and thus the title. Whatever the result, our motto has to be: “No risk. No fun.”.

This is also the title which Peter Angermann, painter, former professor and current recipient of the city’s culture award, has given to his projection on the Imperial Castle. On 2 May, the internationally renowned artist, who will celebrate his 75th birthday in 2020, will make use of this major attraction to display the rich colours of his art. RE:SORB, a young projection team from Berlin (with roots in Bavarian Weißenburg), much in demand worldwide, will stage a special 3D Mapping Show on the façade of the new City Hall. In addition to this, there will be hundreds of programme items in a large variety of cultural institutions, involving also the university, and supplemented by the always surprising projects from the Blaue Nacht Art Competition in unusual locations, such as the historic rock-cut cellars or the Apollo cult cinema. You can already discover those during the preview on 1 May.
 
My warm thanks go to all those who have contributed to the success of Blaue Nacht: to our main sponsors N-ERGIE Aktiengesellschaft, Deutsche Bank and NÜRNBERGER Versicherung, to all supporters and art patrons, to the staff of the cultural institutions involved, to all artists and finally to my colleagues in the team.
 
In 2020, Die Blaue Nacht will yet again present the colourful spectrum of Nuremberg’s art and culture landscape. Have fun exploring and discovering it!
 
Prof. Dr. Julia Lehner
City of Nuremberg Deputy Mayor in Charge of Cultural Affairs
