Amsterdam Light Festival

If you find yourself in the Dutch capital before 19 January 2020, you are in for a special treat! Famed for the fairytale-like cobbled roads, red light districts and coffee shops, Amsterdam presented another city attraction – the 8th edition of the Amsterdam Light Festival. The art initiative invited local and international artists to brighten each city corner with unique installations. This year, the theme “Disrupt!” featured artwork that “use light to catch your attention and shake up Amsterdam.” Illuminating the iconic canals were “Atlantis” by Utskottet and “Surface Tension” by Tom Biddulph & Barbara Ryan. Both installations portrayed the aftermath of a metropolis plagued by floods and natural disasters. Other installations echoed the theme of disruption in the city, using light as a medium to move the audience. Take a canal boat tour and marvel at the new face of the city!
