Superstudio- and Lebbeus Woods-Inspired Projections Light Up the Karlsruhe Palace

As part of the ongoing festivities celebrating Karlsruhe's 300th anniversary (KA300), the German city's central palace is being illuminated nightly with projections inspired by Italian 70s architecture group Superstudio and Lebbeus Woods. The elaborate installation, the Schlosslichtspiele is showcasing the work of nine prominent artists and artist groups - all of whom uniquely explore the "depths and shallows" of the Karlsruhe Palace with their visual art.

Read on to watch a video of the projections.

"Ever since I made the documentary 'Great Expectations - a journey through the history of visionary architecture' I have been fascinated by the visionary imagery of the Italian architecture group Superstudio - especially images from their work 'Continuous Monument' showing metallic glass surfaces covering the planet in a huge architectural grid," says Jesper Wachtmeister, one of the participating artists whose installation "Reflections" is shown in the video above. "Also I was inspired by “Berlin Free-Zone 3-2” by Lebbeus Woods in creating the final scene where irregular planes, walls and floors are interrupting the order of the original architecture - like architectural scars."

The Schlosslichtspiele will remain on view through September 26, 2015.
