GENIUS LOCI WEIMAR FESTIVAL took place from 9-11th August 2013.
During this weekend more than 12.000 visitors gazed in wonder at the spectacular facade
shows of the second Genius Loci Weimar festival.
On Friday, Saturday and Sunday visitors had the opportunity to experience the complex productions. The Wittumspalais facade was put into limelight with „Ana.Digital“ by MEDIA APPARAT from Austria. The projection showed a dancer merged into the projection, to become a dream of historical memory particles.
In the city castle courtyard, „Liszt hitecture“ was projected by Video Mapping Hungary (Hungary). A journey of the
musician Franz Liszt from Hungary and a Hungarian artist group to Weimar was visually renarrated
and combined with a remix of Franz Liszt‘s music.
The main building of the Bauhaus University Weimar presented „Legacy“ by RDV Collectif (France): A triptych on the legacy of the Bauhaus heritage, a study and interpretation of the influences of the old over the new Bauhaus.
Beside the three shows the festival provided several other highlights. The Genius Loci Club in the Project and Design Workshop Gaswerk counted on Friday after the premiere show over 600 visitors, enjoying live video performances, honey-combshaped light installations and electronic music from DWIG + Deer (Weimar) and Mare Ateq (both Berlin). A VJ battle was fought out between Das Konglomerat (Weimar) and Lampenschirm (Vienna).
Beyond that the filmmaker and choreographer Daniel Belton (Good Company) from New Zealand presented
live on Saturday night a specially designed facade projection for the Bauhaus University Weimar.
