Welcome to THE BLUE NIGHT 2022
In 2000, the year after Nuremberg’s 950th anniversary, the first Blue Night invited Nuremberg citizens to see and experience art and culture in an unusual setting and at an unusual time of day. Since then, THE BLUE NIGHT has become Germany’s biggest and most varied Long Night of Art and Culture, with about 140,000 visitors annually, coming from Nuremberg, the surrounding region, the entire Federal Republic and abroad. On offer are more than 300 programme presentations in over 80 institutions, courtyards, on squares and in the streets of Nuremberg’s Old Town.
The Blue Night takes place on Sat, 7 May 2022, 7 p.m. to 1 a.m. There is a preview of contributions to the art competition the night before, on Fri, 6 May, 2022, 8 p.m. to midnight (please take this into account in your cost calculation).
Since 2005, with its annual art competition, THE BLUE NIGHT has offered artists the opportunity to present their works as for instance works and projects from the fields of visual arts, such as light installations, acoustic installations, movement / performance, interactive / participative activities or new media to a larger public for one night in the participating institutions, in courtyards, in enclosed public spaces, and on squares and streets in Nuremberg’s inner city.
