  • Light up, Berlin!

    13. March 2019

    We’re happy to announce that we’re the official supporter of this year’s Light Up Berlin! Within the framework of this unique event, internationally renowned Light Painting artists show their work and skills to take visitors into a magical world of light.

    Light Painting combines photography and painting: In long-term exposure shots, a painting is created by light. Different light sources serve as “brushes” for the artists with existing rooms and objects being integrated into the creation. The event takes place on the 5th of October 2019 at Umspannwerk Berlin, starting from 1pm.
