The installation «Die Nacht ist der Schatten der Erde» («Night is the shadow of the Earth» since 1985) by the Darmstadt artist Vera Röhm (*1943, Landsberg am Lech) in the specially darkened main room of the Kunsthalle consists of black metallic cubes which show in illuminated lettering the title providing aphorism of the German scholar Johann Leonhard Frisch (1666–1743)—up to now in 73 of the world’s 2,000 living languages.
