Theme Amsterdam Light Festival

The organization of the Amsterdam Light Festival introduces a new theme every edition. The selected artists have to base their work on this theme.
The theme of the Amsterdam Light Festival 2016 – 2017 is, A view on Amsterdam.

The artists are free to portray their own vision of the capital city with impressive light art. The artists were given the challenge to show the city from a new perspective. It is intended that the artists do not only express their new look on Amsterdam, but also on its architecture and its role in the world order. The theme is free for interpretation, which gives the artists a lot of freedom to give their own spin on the theme. Amsterdam, its architecture and its role in the world order, will be shown in many different ways. The artists will release their interpretation of the theme, sometimes humorous, futuristic or just historical.


Each edition of the Amsterdam Light Festival artworks are selected by a panel of judges. Through a worldwide Call for Concepts, artists from all over the world were asked to submit new ideas for the festival. In total, there are over 35 light art works from selected artists, designers and architects  from all over the world. They have been giving the special task to relieve the city of Amsterdam artfully.
