  • $\begingroup$ if you go to the object tab (orange cube) and then cycles settings and uncheck "Camera" does it solve your problem? $\endgroup$ – MattTheWaffleCat Jul 28 '17 at 11:44

    $\begingroup$ Hi Matt - wrong setting, but the right direction. If I turn off 'Transmission' in the cycles setting it does work ! Thanks for pushing me into the right direction ! $\endgroup$ – Thorsten Jul 28 '17 at 12:34

Thanks to Matt this is now solved. In the Cycles Settings of the Area Light I turned off the setting for 'transmission' and therender shows what I want :)

Problem solved
