MAKE WALLS TALK!
GENIUS LOCI WEIMAR FESTIVAL 12-14 AUGUST 2016
Once a year since 2012 the Genius Loci Weimar festival brings Weimar's buildings to life with light. The site-specific facade projections are developed through an internationally advertised competition, whose aim is to visualize the spirit of the respective location through video mapping. The winning entries for the Tempelherrenhaus, the Sternbrücke and the water projection at Stern will be premiered in Weimar during the festival weekend from 12 to 14 August 2016. The artistic projections will be accompanied by the Genius Loci Lab at E-Werk Weimar and a Spatial Audio Installation at Hafiz Goethe Memorial that focuses on Goethe's encounter with the works of Hafiz and therefore also on the highly topical interplay between East and West only by using the means of sound.
With around 30,000 visitors in 2015 the festival is one of the highlights of the event series “Weimarer Sommer”. As dusk falls, places in and around the park on the Ilm will be staged with light and sound.
