World Heritage sites in a new light

Hildesheim, St. Michael (2)
“Lichtungen” will be a series of lightart interventions related to Hildesheim’s World Heritage sites. Physical light as artistical material can change the appearance of surfaces, redefine spatial kontexts and reinvent urban contours without interfering with the fabrics of buildings but it needs a new network of coooperations between historic buildings, innovative technologies and cultural players. Fine art and architecture, socio-cultural education and urban development, city planing and city marketing spawn new turnstiles in order to link artistic articulation and creative processes to the ongoing discussion of the relevance of the World Heritage for contemporary urban life.
