lichtsicht – Projection Biennial is a globally unique forum of international projection art. It is being held for the fifth time at the spa town of Bad Rothenfelde in Lower Saxony, where renowned artists create one of the most impressive events for video and light art in an open space.
Peter Weibel, Director of the prestigious ZKM | Center for Art and Media in Karlsruhe, artist and internationally acclaimed exhibition creator, curated lichtsicht 5. His choice of artists promises the presentation of a broad, high-calibre, and very lively international spectrum of positions featuring video, media and projection art, spanning scholarly/aesthetic approaches and interactive works featuring sound and visual art to politically inspired pieces.
“The aim of lichtsicht - Projection Biennial is to showcase the new spectrum of projection art at the cutting edge of artistic and technology advances. It involved pure light projections and computer-controlled video effects. Visitors are rewarded with a new aesthetic experience, due to the intense stimulation of the different sensory organs, from ears to eyes, and novel technically controlled stimuli. The attraction of light can now be defined as information. The latest level of projection art is, therefore, data and information art. lichtsicht 5 would like to provide a platform to foster this development.”
