LICHTSTADT FELDKIRCH

Every two years the Festival for Art with Light invites international artists to transform Feldkirch in many forms and facets. The historic old town is not only a spectacular backdrop for the four festival evenings in October, the locations are also and above all the starting point and inspiration for the form and content of the light art festival.

The result is a barrier-free tour that can be experienced within the space of a few minutes’ walk. Thanks to the free admission, the festival makes light art accessible to a broad and heterogeneous public. The adventurous experience of light art works connects people across all borders.

The program of the festival is oriented to national and international developments in contemporary art. Media or methodological diversity is sought in the respective artistic œuvre. Between the poles of abstraction and representation, fascinating projects can arise in the various forms of expression. The entire spectrum of art with light can be and is included in the selection: objects, sculptures, installations, films, digital and analogue projections, custom-fit mappings, laser projections and digital art.

SPOTLIGHT

With the addition of the “Spotlight” format in 2020, the light art festival has found an exciting expansion. Every two years, alternating with the four-day event, we focus on an artist or group of artists.

As a setting for light art, urban space offers numerous as yet unexplored opportunities to experience the present through architecture, light and technology, to break viewing habits and to illuminate the past. In the midst of the fast-paced arts and culture scene and the city-spanning organization of the festival, Spotlight creates a slowdown and concentration, a safe framework for diverse creativity and thinking. This allows for artistic development and thereby sets different thematic and technically innovative emphases.
