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 Art Competition: Since 2005, with its annual art competition, THE BLUE NIGHT has offered artists the opportunity to present their works (works and projects from the fields of visual arts, such as light installations, (acoustic) installations, movement / performance, (interactive/participative) activities, new media etc.) to a larger public in the participating institutions, in courtyards, in enclosed public spaces, and on squares and streets in Nuremberg’s inner city.

In 2017, for the first time, there was a preview of contributions to the art competition the night before The Blue Night. There will be a similar preview in 2020, too.

Preview THE BLUE NIGHT: Fri, 1 May, 2020, 8 p.m. to midnight
The Blue Night: Sat, 2 May, 2020, 7 p.m. to 1 a.m.

Note! The art projects from the Blue Night art competition will therefore be on show for two days (please take this into account in your cost calculation!)

N-ERGIE Audience Award: The N-ERGIE Audience Award, including prize money of 5,000 Euros, will be presented for the tenth time at the 2020 Blue Night. It will honour an art project given first place in the ranking by The Blue Night visitors.
