The world as our guest at the nikolai quarter
„Marketplace of Culture: – From the cradle of Berlin to a visual journey to 17 sister cities“
A look beyond the rim of the tea cup has it’s tradition for the FESTIVAL OF LIGHTS and the marketplace of culture is firmly established. For the last years many countries visited Berlin with exclusive videomappings and gave us impressions of their cultures and lifestyles. In the past years a lot of countries presented themselves on the facade of the Hotel de Rome.
For the first time the marketplace of culture takes place in the nikolai quarter. In the quiet atmosphere of this little district, you can watch the projections far away from the traffic and noise of the city. This year the visitors experience a journey around the world. With a 3D- videomapping the nikolaichurch, the oldest church of the city, will be illuminated every festival evening and opens a window to world cultures. Iconographic motifs from Europe, Asia, America and the eastern hemisphere arouse the desire to discover foreign countries. A late visit of the historical quarter is recommended.
