E.ON is presenter of the Festival of Lights for the 6th time
E.ON has been a permanent partner of the Festival of Lights for six years now. With its intelligent networks, the company would like to bring more and more green electricity to people and literally connect them with one another. As one of the leading energy companies in Europe, E.ON supplies more than 52 million households and companies with electricity and natural gas every day. With around 75,000 employees, the group focuses on three business areas that reflect global energy trends: energy networks, customer solutions and renewable energies. E.ON is committed to the change to an ecological and digital energy world and in this context offers comprehensive service and appropriate advice on photovoltaics, energy storage, energy checks and efficiency measures. This mission fits perfectly with the idea of the Festival of Lights.
This year E.ON is lighting five buildings in four different districts of Berlin.
The Brandenburg Gate presents a wonderful 3-minute video mapping “Symphony of Life”. The show tells the history and evolution of mankind, the natural rhythm of existence and our place in the universe. Greetings from Berlin to the world. The mapping was created by MP Studio from Bulgaria.
If there are large crowds in front of the Brandenburg Gate, we have to switch off the illumination for an indefinite period of time. We ask for your understanding.
E.ON is also a guest at the Hotel de Rome on Bebelplatz. On the facade there is a colorful statue with many colors, shapes and flowers. There you can experience a 180 degree work of art on the subject of “Together we shine”.
Furthermore, on the castle island in green Köpenick, the beautiful baroque castle, which houses treasures of the arts and crafts in its museum, will be transformed into a special excursion destination on September 20, 2020 with bright art motifs, supported by E.ON.
Another highlight of our presenter is the 3D video folder on the Tchoban Foundation in Pankow. The modern museum for architectural drawings is located on the former brewery site on Pfefferberg and is set in scene with different light motifs. From September 11th, the exhibition “Thom Mayne: Sculptural Drawings” can be seen in the museum during the day and this impressive art will also be part of the production at the Festival of Lights on the evening of September 18th.
Traditionally, the Festival of Lights and its presenter E.ON organize a competition in which the best video artists are awarded. This year the festival team, together with E.ON, invited three winners of previous Festival of Lights competitions to present their visions of this year’s motto on the imposing facade of Charlottenburg Palace. The 3-minute show with all three winners runs every hour on the hour from 9 p.m. to 11 p.m. For more information click here.
