Over 15,000 enthusiastic festival-goers were captivated by three days of facade projection shows in Weimar.
The facade projection festival Genius Loci Weimar – now in its third successful year – closed with final performances on Sunday evening. Throughout the weekend (Friday - Sunday), artists presented spectacular facade shows – this year featuring the Anna Amalia Library, the German National Theatre Weimar and the historic city square at Herderplatz. From 9.30 pm until midnight, audiences could experience live these elaborate and unique productions. Despite the poor weather, some 15,000 visitors enjoyed the festival shows.
Festival director Hendrik Wendler summed up the weekend’s events: ‘We are delighted to see that Genius Loci Weimar has once again really resonated with audiences. To see the festival shows live is a unique experience and we are proud that we could present these artists and their productions in Weimar. Our new features – the Genius Loci Lab and the mobile projections of short films – also went down well, adding an extra buzz to the festival atmosphere.’
For audiences at the German National Theatre, the show was above all a sound experience. For their projection ‘Klang3’, Dresden-based artists ruestungsschmie.de and Soundselektor recorded sounds produced by the building itself. Using hands, bows and drumsticks, they ‘played’ columns, windows and doors like musical instruments. This sound composition was visually paired with abstract animated elements taken from theatre architecture.
On the city’s Herderplatz, Xenorama presented their work ‘Moya Façade’. This projection show incorporated the bust of Ohm Kruger, leader of the Boers in South Africa, set in the one facade, and, facing him, the statue of the Enlightenment theologian Johann Gottfried Herder in front of the church bearing his name. Highlighting different aspects of the contrasting philosophical worlds of these two figures, the artists projected vibrantly coloured African patterns and symbols onto the building facade and a shadow play onto the church. As part of the show, a silhouette of Herder’s statue disappeared from the church facade only to reappear moments later on the building with Kruger’s bust.
Similarly, the Italian artists mammasONica delighted audiences with their facade performance at the Duchess Anna Amalia Library, playing with images of fire – as a destructive force and also anima – and charred embers as lockets of time and memory. This was particularly apt, given this year’s tenth anniversary of the fire which heavily damaged the library. Focusing on the Genius Loci – the spirit of the location – the projection ‘Limen’ did more than simply dwell on that fateful event. It was innovative, too, with its diverse illustrative style, featuring stop motion techniques using clay figures, silhouettes and shadow play.
A first this year was the Genius Loci Lab. Here, at the former Künstlerhaus (once an arts complex) behind the Bauhaus Museum, eight teams of young videomapping artists from Germany, Mexico and Argentina experimented with the possibilities of facade projection and held a workshop to examine and question more traditional forms of the genre. Leander Leinenbach, organiser of the Lab and student at the Bauhaus University Weimar, explained the idea behind the project: ‘During the preparation phase we worked together to develop an installation that builds on the existing architecture of the ruins. In this way, viewers can experience the reflection of the location also by day. We also chose to incorporate elements of stage productions, using a dance performance to establish interactivity and smoke and lighting effects to draw in the entire venue and not just one building.’ Working with a stage that was open on all sides allowed visitors to see how projections are made. All the shows were produced live and on location. In developing the projections in only four days, cooperation and dialogue between teams was needed. According to the organiser, ‘the friendly and informal atmosphere that developed amongst the teams shows that we achieved our goal and that everyone will be taking home with them new friendships, knowledge and skills’.
The film walk hosted by A Wall is a Screen on Friday and Saturday evenings also proved popular. Having gathered in the courtyard of the university library, short film aficionados were taken on a city walk by the artists, from one facade to the next – each an unconventional film screen. To increase suspense, films and locations were not revealed in advance. Fans reacted enthusiastically to the many different films – from humorous to thought-provoking. A Wall is a Screen summed up their festival experience: ‘The Genius Loci Weimar Festival was a great opportunity for us to discover, together with our audiences, the spirit of everyday locations in Weimar. With our selection of short films and walls we sure opened up some new angles on the city. We really loved the responses of the audiences and both performances were lots of fun.’
Rounding off Friday’s opening events, Gaswerk Weimar hosted the festival’s club night. Visual treats included an installation with violet-coloured laser light (Sebastian Wolf), inside the club, a perspex construction involving table tennis balls (SYç) and an exterior projection by Lotus Lumina. Club sounds were provided by Technotürken (Berghain, Berlin), Deer (Giegling Records), Peter Kirn/Nerk (V-Records Berlin) and Marcel Machedanz (Tanz und Klangkombinat).
To accompany the installations and events on Friday evening, the festival held its first tweetup. Festival-goers with a Twitter account were invited to meet up to report live on the event. As they visited the projection venues, under the hashtag #glw14, users tweeted videos, photos and messages of no more than 140 characters on the facade projection shows. In turn, these messages were re-tweeted by followers throughout Germany. All the tweets can be found under this hashtag.

Announcing an international competition for facade projection
Prize money totaling €45,000 will be awarded to the best artistic works
Now in its third year, the facade projection festival Genius Loci Weimar has again launched an international competition for projection art. Artists from the fields of video mapping, projection, interactive- and visual design as well as architecture are encouraged to apply as of now.
The festival is seeking concepts for historic facades in the city of Weimar. This year, as before, the event has at its disposal three buildings that are as artistically challenging as they are historically interesting. These are the German National Theatre Weimar
(DNT), the Duchess Anna Amalia Library and the house at Herderplatz, including the Ohm Krüger bust.
A specific requirement for the artistic works is the development of an independent visual language that should avoid protracted historical retelling or clichéd motifs of the city of Weimar. In the foreground is the ‘genius loci’ – the spirit of the location – which
will be rendered visible using the latest techniques of the media art of video mapping.
Artists intending to participate should submit their work in the format of a 30-second clip by 15 April 2014. The three best and most popular works will be chosen by public voting on the website and in an exhibition in Weimar, as well as by expert jury. The winners will receive prize money totaling €45,000
for the implementation of their projects.
The finished facade projections will be presented in a live show during the festival, which will take place from 15 to 17 August 2014.
The competition rules as well as detailed information on the facades are available on the website www.genius-loci-weimar.org.
About the festival
Genius Loci Weimar is an annual festival for site-specific audiovisual art and above all (interactive) projections for facades, spaces and buildings. The festival combines the historical spirit of Weimar and the contemporary technology of video mapping, a projection technique that incorporates the projection surface
in the image design, giving an extra dimension to unmoving objects and creating the effect of optical illusions.
Genius Loci Weimar – an international competition as well as exhibition and symposium – provides a thorough overview of current video mapping productions from around the world. All culture enthusiasts are invited to the award-winning projection shows as well as to the Genius Loci Club. Today, the
festival is considered a meeting point for the international video mapping scene as well as a professional audience from the areas of architecture, media art, design, performing arts and visual arts. In 2013 the festival was attended by over 12,000 people.
Genius Loci Weimar takes place as part of Weimar Summers and in cooperation with the festival organizers MXperience gUG, the Foundation of Weimar Classics, the Department of Media Architecture at the Bauhaus University Weimar, and the Gaswerk
Weimar project- and design workshop. The festival is also supported by the Thuringian Ministry of Economy, Labour and Technology, the Cultural Foundation of the State of Thuringia, the City of Weimar, the Best Western Premier Grand Hotel Russischer Hof, Barco GmbH, and by AED Rent GmbH. Media partners this year are De:Bug magazine,
ByteFM and Whisper.

SEE THIS SOUND. PROMISES IN SOUND AND VISION
28 August 2009 - 10 January 2010
Lentos Kunstmuseum Linz
Artists today take an engagement with the sound of this world for granted. The former predominance of the visual has meanwhile been replaced by a multifaceted interplay of image and sound. Even though contemplative quiet still largely predominates in museums, sound, experimental composition, audiovisual media and pop culture have become central references for visual art in the 20th century. See This Sound documents this development from the perspective of visual art and refers to the respective contemporary discussions and promises.
In eight separate sections, See This Sound exhibits a number of important milestones and socio-historical reference points, in connection with which artists have worked with sound and composition and reflected on the medial relationship of image and sound.
Starting from the filmic sound visualizations of the 1920s - so-called Eye Music - it traces the topos of traversing genre boundaries in the 1960s and questions psychedelic trance machines and multimedia sound environments about their social-political potential. The illusion of a "natural" interplay of image and sound, for instance in Hollywood movies, is countered by works that disclose the discrepancies of this purported synthesis, all the way to the loss of sound and the power of speech. In addition, there is a special focus on the local production conditions of sounds (industrial cities and industrial sounds), and on sound as a medium of institutional critique. Astonishing promises have always been associated with the interplay of image and sound, with the crossover of visual art and music, in short: with "intermediality" - and sometimes still are up to the present, if we think of the idea of an "expanded visual culture" in the era of YouTube.

With beats generated by nintendo sounds, samplers or synthetizers and toys, human voices processed with vocoders or various strange filters, we shall see what comes out of the mix. It certainly should be amusing for audience and participants alike.
BREAKBEAT + TECHNO + ELECTRO
Video performances and vj sets are typically found flowing with the intense sounds and the relentless beats of electronic club music. And you'll find that here too, imagery following and interpreting the rhythm of the freshest Breakbeat and Drum n'bass, and from 2am to 4am going with the pulsating Techno and Electro sounds.
A full day of Queer independent culture, a manifestation of the several projects which are working on a national and international level to experiment with the language of representation in terms of gender, politics and sexual orientations with the aim of deconstructing stereotypes and ideological power relationships.
There will be background videos and music for dinner, and after dinner dedicated AV performances and vjsets. As usual, at the end of the evening, open time for VJs will take place: vjs can perform freely, taking advantage of the many available video consoles, beamers and monitors.LPM 2009 maintains the spirit of a meeting, which has been its main characteristic since the first edition. It is conceived to be a place for comparison and exchange of information and ideas among vjs, visual artists, live-video performers and passionates. Experimentation is one of the founding elements of its ideology. LPM is a non-profit organisation where any gained funds are invested back to support the research and development of the live visual field.
Similarity of ideals and common roots has prompted the LPM to become member of the Avit network, whose aim is to improve and promote the culture of veejaying events worldwide. After the first festivals in England, the Avit network expanded worldwide, establishing collaborations as in C23 in Germany (AVIT Berlin) and Vision'r in France (AVIT France) and LPM in Italy. This partnership of "network" and "meeting" is possible thanks to the common cultural background and the strong affinity of spirit and purposes.
LPM is not a festival, it is an opportunity of meeting to get a glimpse of what visual-artists are creating or, even better, what they could create. Therefore, and in order to allow the many interesting artists to perform, the maximum length of a performance is 30 minutes.
The subscription to join LPM is FREE and is open now until the 30th of April, 2009. For details on how to subscribe, see the "participate" section of the website.

Following the successful debut in 2006 and a sold out edition in 2007, the third edition of the STRP Festival is taking place 2 - 13 April 2009.
The STRP Festival is one of the largest art & technology festivals in Europe and the mix of music, art & technology makes it unique. The multidisciplinary programme appeals to a wide audience. The focus during the opening weekend in 2009 is on impact and experience, while the second part will concentrate on delving deeper, amazement and quieting down. In addition to the festival, the STRP Foundation also organised the 5MM (five minute museum) in cooperation with Eindhoven’s MU art space.
Stripe, strip, sssttttrrrrrppp: you can pronounce it any way you like, but you might be wondering just exactly what it means. You are not alone; we still often get asked what STRP stands for. STRP stands for Strijp, the name of the industrial site where the STRP Festival is held. The Strijp-S location is a huge industrial area where Philips came up with practically all of its revolutionary inventions during the previous century. This is where the audio cassette, the CD and the video 2000 system were born. In addition to all of these technological advances, Strijp-S was also the scene of an honest-to-goodness creative revolution. Philips worked closely with a considerable number of artists and gave them the opportunity to fulfil their dreams using the latest technology. Even back then Strijp-S was a creative breeding group where art and technology fused together.
After Philips left the area, it was time to find a new use for Strijp-S. The solution was to provide and develop a home for the creative urban centre of Eindhoven: ‘The Creative City’. And what better place to host the STRP Festival than the former Philips premises, where decades were spent experimenting with art and technology. We think you will agree.
