Impressions from the Berlin leuchtet / Berlin lights 2017 event which took again place in the 1st half of October with illuminated facades and buildings all over the city each evening from sun-set till midnight.
For the beginning of autumn the city decided to disguise again in colorful visions and pictures of light like another kind of carnival. Even sharp historical contours are now easily softening when diverse light artists are projecting their moving grafitti-like pictures and untamed motives on classical or modern facades serving now as an open cinema of profound collective imagination.
The steady buildings transmute to simple illusions of sparkling tales, abstractions, comics or other visual stories, even funny children’s drawings were used this year being projected on the classical walls of old Humboldt University, a nice and vivid contrast to the usual daily life taking place there normally. This event takes place each year now starting usually end of September till mid of October here in Berlin and is really worth a visit.
