As in previous years, the winners of a light art competition get to illuminate Karlsruhe’s former abattoir compound with their works of art. Light objects, light and media art installations and illuminated sculptures invite visitors to take in and engage with them.
The numerous works of art will either be created especially for this event or else adapted for the occasion. In that context, the creative hub that has developed on the old abattoir will literally shine in all its glory. It would be hard to beat “Schwein gehabt!” when it comes spending an evening out. (The literal translation of the name of the festival—“you had pig”—is a German idiom meaning “you lucked out.”)
