The sixth edition of Amsterdam Light Festival takes place from 27 November 2018 until 20 January 2019. This year’s festival brings a fair share of surprises. Over 40 artworks and installations of artists, designers and architects from home and abroad will light up the city center of Amsterdam. Among the works will be a light object by Chinese artist and activist Ai WeiWei. Ai Weiwei’s light object can be admired on the water route of Amsterdam Light Festival, which holds “Existential” as its general theme. “With Existential we hope to encourage visitors in a positive way to think about what unites people and what role light plays in this,” explains curator Lennart Booij.
