Any history of color is, above all, a social history. How can we tell our story through the filter of the color blue? First known for its preciousness and the scarcity of the lapis lazuli pigment, the history of the color blue is one that has undergone various changes in meanings over time: from blue jeans and blue-collar workers to the color of the European Union and United Nations, to becoming a symbol of freedom and the color of melancholy in expressions like “feeling blue.”

The exhibition “Blue Times” showcases more than 30 international artists whose works revolve around the significance of the color blue.

Curators: Amira Gad, Nicolaus Schafhausen
