Looking to other cultures during the FESTIVAL OF LIGHTS is almost a tradition. Many nations were already guests in Berlin with their artistic projections. Also at the Hotel de Rome, which celebrates its 10th anniversary this year. 2015 during the festival the visitors saw a shining world from the World Heritage Site Macau with a great video mapping. Also 2016 a complex mapping of approx. 4 minutes captivated all visitors. But this year more countries took center. Different world cultures were put in perspective and of course in light. The virtual tour around the world started in Berlin as the capital itself stands for a cultural diversity and is center of attraction for visitors from all over the world. All stations of the tour reflected iconographic the cultures of the countries. The cultural metropolis as shining star – club culture, European history, world politics, tolerance, free development, neverending road works, innovation…
The journey throuh all continents went amongst others to the flower island Madeira, and to the multicultural Luxembourg and to Bulgaria.
The Faculty of Law with its classical architecture projection in the neighbourhood of the Hotel de Rome was the counterbalance. From Unter den Linden over the road the Humboldt Universität was illuminated fanciful.
