Side event - Schlosslichtspiele

Look forward to the Schlosslichtspiele light show on all evenings of SEMANTiCS 2019! From 8 August to 15 September 2019 the Schlosslichtspiele light show will take place in Karlsruhe. We recommend visiting this high-end visual performance. 

Following the grand success of the last four years with more than 1.3 million visitors, Karlsruhe’s Schlossplatz in the heart of the city will once again become a meeting point and attraction in summer 2019. The elaborate projections and video mappings of internationally renowned artists and artist groups entice thousands of people to visit the castle every evening free of charge. Curator of Schlosslichtspiele Peter Weibel, chairman of the ZKM | Centre for Art and Media Karlsruhe, chooses the most outstanding projection mappings from a variety of submissions.

At nightfall, the projections can be seen as a spectacular visual and audio experience on the entire 170 m long Baroque castle facade. Use the green areas in front of the castle to enjoy the projections on a picnic blanket. Experience one of the largest digital artworks in Europe.

In the case of (unlikely) rainfall, please find a rain cape in your conference bag.
