Piene’s DAS GELEUCHT is a light installation on top of Halde Rheinpreußen, a hill in Moers. It consists of a 30-metre tower in the shape of a miner’s lamp and 35 light poles illuminating the hill’s slope. The focus of Piene’s work is the significance of mining for the local area and the safety of miners which are both represented by the lamp. >>
