Schlosslichtspiele 2016
The colored Karlsruhe palace facade
New magnificent shows
07.08.2016 – 25.09.2016

In summer 2016, people can look forward to the Schlosslichtspiele again: the facade of Karlsruhe Palace with its almost 3,000 square metres will be set in motion every evening from 7th August to 25th September.

Once again this year, the pieces create spectacular visual forms and narrations between the past, present and future: With the palace staged piece by Alexander Stublic, the facade of the palace will rotate like a revolving stage around an imaginary central axis. The Paperlife projection by Hauslaib Lichtwelten will create a new facade from paper: Like the pages of a book, it is folded, torn and creased. Artist collective Xenorama, which also took part last year, is working with the materiality of paper too: They are filming a true-to-scale model of the palace from paper and casting it onto the real, physical surface of the palace in a digitally manipulated manner. With his DSG animation + VFX studio, Dragos Stefan is organising a parade of iconic pieces from the classic avant-garde about the palace with their Defilee zum 100. Geburtstag der Avantgarde projection (Parade for the 100th anniversary of the avant-garde). Maxin10sity will also be looking back into the past with their new piece: They will be casting new light on exhibits of the Badisches Landesmuseum by using a time lapse to retell our cultural history from the prehistory and early history through to the cultures of the ancient world. 

This year’s special: Everybody can let the castle shine! For the new edition of the Schlosslichtspiele, ZKM and Karlsruhe Event GmbH initiated a fundraiser campaign. The campaign donors each receive an inidividual certificate so they can become a part of the show itself, their portrait photos will be projected on the castle’s facade. Further, support for Schlosslichtspiele 2016 can be given by buying a button with the inscription »Ich lasse das Schloss leuchten!« (»I let the castle shine!«). The buttons are available at ZKM | Shop and can be purchased for 5 Euros each. 

The light show was the highlight of last year’s 300th anniversary of the founding of the city of Karlsruhe: 400,000 visitors gathered in the evenings in front of the castle to watch the fascinating projections of renowned artists from all over the world. 

Due to the great success of Schlosslichtspiele 2015, the city council of Karlsruhe decided to continue the project this summer.
