Genius Loci Weimar is an unique media art festival which looks beyond the mere geometry of objects to explore the possibilities of reflecting the spirt of the place through projection art. Unlike erratic claptrap, Genius Loci Weimar approach focuses on an intensive analysis of history, habitus and the architectonical composition of the place.
The international festival of audiovisual projections Genius Loci Weimar was launched in 2012 and became an immediate success. The first projection location was Fürstenhaus on Platz der Demokratie, which houses the main building of the Franz Liszt Academy of Music. The winner was the work of the Istanbul artist group NERDWORKING. The group had previously succeeded in a competition among ten international candidates with their concept. Besides the work of the award winners, other works of local and international artists were also presented during the festival.
2013 will mark the expansion of Genius Loci Weimar in time and space: three historic facades will be animated, and invite you to an evening stroll along the projection locations. The festival is being expanded to include a program with competition, symposium, workshops and exhibition in cooperation with the Bauhaus University Weimar. A new and unique festival format enriches so the “Weimarer Sommer” event series and offers a hotspot for a young art-form and provides a pool for different creative disciplines.
