Potsdamer Platz Panorama Staging
The Potsdamer Platz is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year and will become a total artwork in the context of the 14th FESTIVAL OF LIGHTS! The large buildings with their elaborate large-scale projections will make this year a unique panorama staging and thus one of the highlights of this year’s festival.
The “World Championship of Projection Mapping” competition takes 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 will also be spectacularly lit up. The various light art objects play with the impressive facets of modern art.

As in previous years, the Pianosee and Alte Potsdamer Straße provide the stage for a special light spectacle. Water features and lights create a magical atmosphere on the Pianosee, reminiscent of the big shows in Las Vegas. This year, the artist group Lichtpiraten take over the creative design, their artworks have already been featured in Buenos Aires, Jerusalem and Hanoi. A touch of Canadian autumn can be felt on the boulevard Alte Potsdamer Straße, whose trees are bathed in warm autumn light. The video mapping “Aguaviva” in front of the Haus Huth shows a mysteriously beautiful woman’s face: its brilliant white surroundings contrast with a bright red of water lilies and carnations – and makes the “living water”, the translation of the Spanish title, even more mysterious and remote. A wonderful floor projection on Potsdamer Platz, large-screen projections on the building Eichhornstr. 3 and in front of the building Potsdamer Platz 1 complete the experience in this part of town.
