Lichtparcours Braunschweig 2016

11th June — 22th September
Lichtparcours 2016 Stadt Braunschweig


15 artworks, 4 months, 24 hours, 1 City

In 2016 Lichtparcours Braunschweig 2016 will present current works throughout the city and on the premises of the Port of Braunschweig-Veltenhof.
In this fourth edition of the exhibition format, the focus will be on new artistic productions. After exploring the urban landscape, the artists developed concepts for site-specific works, each applying different strategies of intervention for public locations. Considerations for the periodic transformations in natural lighting throughout an entire day, constitute vital points of reference: For the first time, there will be a focus on works whose interplay with the surroundings can be experienced during all 24 hours of the day. Visitors will be offered the possibility of returning to the sites, again and again, at any time, to experience the works in new ways at different times of the day.
