Potsdamer Platz Panorama Staging
The Potsdamer Platz was celebrating its 20th anniversary in 2018 and became a total artwork in the context of the 14th FESTIVAL OF LIGHTS! The large buildings with their elaborate large-scale projections transformed into an unique panorama staging and became one of the highlights of this year’s festival edition.
The “World Championship of Projection Mapping” competition took place on the Kollhoff Tower, in the middle of Potsdamer Platz. The Forum Tower, the BahnTower, the Ritz Carlton, the P5 and the Canadian Embassy also spectacularly lit up. The various light art objects played with the impressive facets of modern art.

As in previous years, the Pianosee and Alte Potsdamer Straße provided the stage for a special light spectacle. Water features and lights created a magical atmosphere on the Pianosee. The video mapping “Aguaviva” in front of the Haus Huth showed a mysteriously beautiful woman’s face: its brilliant white surroundings contrast with a bright red of water lilies and carnations – and made the “living water”, the translation of the Spanish title, even more mysterious.
The wonderful floor projection on Potsdamer Platz completed the experience at Potsdamer Platz. The Ritz-Carlton, the Forum Tower, the BahnTower, the P5 and the Canadian Embassy were also part of the overall staging.
