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 2018 – 2019 is, The Medium is the Message. With this theme, they want to answer questions about the medium light. What kinds of messages does the medium light transmit nowadays? How does it communicate in a way that no other medium can? How does light shape or transform (digital) space? And many more.

Artists
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 23 light artworks 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.
