Christopher Bauder Announced as EE23 Keynote Speaker


The IALD is thrilled to announce that innovative designer and artist Christopher Bauder, globally renowned for his incredible large-scale spatial art installations, will be the headline speaker at the IALD Enlighten Europe 2023 lighting design conference in his native city of Berlin on 30 June.

Christopher Bauder is an artist working in the fields of light- and installation art, media art, and live audiovisual performance. He focuses on translating bits and bytes into objects and environments and vice versa. Space, object, sound, light, and interaction are the key elements of his work.

Bauder has brought his installations and performances to events and spaces worldwide, including Centre Pompidou Paris, MUTEK Montreal, Fete des Lumieres Lyon, The National Museum of Fine Arts Taiwan, the National Centre for the Performing Arts in Beijing and many more.

He is best known for his city-wide light art installation “LICHTGRENZE”, created in 2014 with his brother Marc Bauder, for the 25th anniversary of the Fall of the Berlin Wall.

Bauder’s keynote will be the headlining session of the event, which runs from 30 June through 1 July at the Café Moskau in the heart of Berlin.

The conference schedule spans two days of thought-provoking discussions among the profession’s foremost experts to inspire and motivate, moving architectural lighting design into the future.

Now is the time to start earnestly preparing for the #EE23 event. The dates are set, the location is being prepared, and with the news of this extraordinary keynote speaking engagement, the Enlighten Europe experience cannot be missed.

Conference details, including city tours, educational sessions, reception events, and more, are being added daily at iald.me/ee23.
