Not only with their traditional images, but with highly-carated art of our times the Essener Lichtwochen (Light Weeks) are brilliantly setting the scene for the „Guest Country Hungary“.Under the designation: “Cultural capitals 2010 Essen and Pécs – Hungarian accent” the artist in light Peter Kozma well-known all over Europe has created a sensational installation of light art for Kennedyplatz. Starting 29 October through 5 November Essen’s central square of events will be changed into an accessible works of art, from 5.p.m. until midnight.
Each day the artist faces up to another subject.The traditional Essener Lichtwochen with their motto “Guest Country Hungary” are the foil in front of the background of which the artist moves.
Cultural, political and artistic issues are being incorporated into his work. And so one day is dedicated to both cultural capitals 2010 – Pécs and the Ruhr/Essen. A second, more serious subject of the day is in remembrance of the Hungarian Revolt in 1956. The installation – supported by a suggestive carpet of sounds – is kind of sucking the visitor in. He becomes partly a main actor in an unusual urban theatrical space.
