THE LIGHT INSTALLATIONS
Of course, we can’t look into the future – what will Edition 12 look like? With “Revealing Art, AI and Tech”, this year’s focus is on the impact of technology and artificial intelligence (AI) on our daily lives. How society is changing as a result of this digital development and where the limits (should) lie will be shown this year.
Last year’s theme was “Imagine Beyond” and it was definitely very imaginative.
It took us on a journey into the world of imagination. The idea was to dream along and go beyond the here and now. There were talking lamps and virtual bridges? And water flowing uphill!
We can show you the pictures from previous years! The artworks ran in 2021/22 under the motto ‘Celebrate Light’ and in 2020/21 ‘When Nature Calls’. And celebrate light – they did! Because in times of Covid-19, it wasn’t easy to see the light at the end of the tunnel.
The Festival of Lights also supports and integrates fellow human beings!
The 2021/2022 projects:
On the one hand, 3 Breitner Academy (Amsterdam Academy of Art) students took part in the Lightfestivel.
Around 1000 primary school pupils from all over Amsterdam contributed to a work of art by Studio Toer!
And senior citizens were also able to enjoy a special evening canal cruise for older citizens.
