International Light Art Project

COLLUMINA says Thank you!!

Thank you very much for your visit to the Light Art Project COLLUMINA.
It was the difficult time with the coronavirus-crisis, while the measure was understandably taken more and more strictly from day to day due to the high risk of infection. As a result, we had difficulties in continuing and had to make the decision to close indoor exhibitions on the last day.
Nevertheless, we were very happy to have welcomed numerous visitors in the open, public space until the end.

Hopefully we will see each other again in two years!

Until then please stay healthy and warm greetings,

While many events around the world have been cancelled due to the corona virus, the Light Art Project COLLUMINA is taking place, because the artworks, projections as well as sound installations of our project are mostly freely accessible and are therefore located in public, free space.

In the course of the Coronavirus case, it is possible that some of the indoor projects will be closed at short notice.

We will inform you accordingly about upcoming updates on the website, Facebook and Instagram!

From today on, each exhibition space will only be open until 11 pm.

Thank you for your interest in COLLUMINA.
