5th Genius Loci Weimar Festival: Make Walls Talk!
Genius Loci Weimar: International Competition for Architectural Projection Mapping

Genius Loci Weimar: Videomapping and Facade-Projection
Since 2012 the Genius Loci Weimar Festival for videomapping and facade-projection utelises light and sound to bring the buildings of Weimar to life. Using state of the art projection-technology, facades, spaces and objects are „brought to light“. The main idea is to capture the genius loci – the spirit of the place – taking in the history, the architecture and the people associated with the place and to make this spirit perceptible through videomapping.
The winning entries of this years videomapping-competition will be shown on the pitoresque ruin of Tempelherrenhaus, the Sternbrücke and on a special installation of water-screens at the Stern. At Hafis-Goethe-Denkmal the winners of the spatial audio competition will create an audible dialog between the oriental and the occidental world.
Genius Loci Lab – The Festivals Audiovisuel Adventure Playground
This year the Genius Loci Lab – the festivals audiovisuel adventure playground – takes place at the E-Werk close to Ilmpark and Sternbrücke.
AV artists, vjs, musicians, light- and interior designers get together already in the week leading up to the festival to develope their collective live-shows and spatial interventions. The labs program is varying, dynamic and diversified. None of the shows is like another.
