WISH light exhibition

WISH  > An interactive light exhibition

Museum Romeinse Katakomben, 

15 December 2018 t/m 10 January 2019.


OPEN CALL for light artists,

product designers and conceptual artists 


Museum Romeinse Katakomben will present the third edition of the underground light exhibition WISH. The event will take place in the mystical underground corridors and crypts of the museum.

Each December / January, people in ancient Rome gave each other so called 'New Year lamps'. Beautiful terracotta lamps with personal messages written all over them. Museum Romeinse Katakomben will translate this phenomenon to our contemporary world, by organizing a light exhibition around New Year. Visitors of the museum will be challenged to participate: they will be invited to leave a personal wish behind. Museum Romeinse Katakomben will fulfill one of them. 


Museum Romeinse Katakomben invites light artists, product designers and conceptual artists to exhibit a light object or installation. An expense allowance (e.g. transportation costs) is available.
