As last year, immersive technologies will also be a major component of Prolight + Sound in 2019.
The aim is transporting the audience into seemingly completely new worlds with the help of technical solutions. This feeling is also conveyed by the Kunstkraftwerk in Leipzig with its new exhibition on Renaissance art
Renaissance in the 21st Century
The current exhibition “LEONARDO DA VINCI – RAFFAEL – MICHELANGELO Giants of the Renaissance” leaves everyone amazed because the ‘old masters’ have never been staged like this before.
The world-famous works of art are powerfully presented digitally and visually on 7,000 square meters using immersive technologies.
The high resolution images are projected on walls and columns up to 8 meters high. Visitors have the opportunity to immerse themselves in art and interactively participate in the viewing of art. Using touchscreens they can zoom into the images and perceive previously hidden details. In contrast to the industrial hall and former power station, the art seems to merge with it and the audience and creates a unique ambience.
The multimedia show was created by the Italian artists Gianfranco Iannuzzi, Renato Gatto and Massimiliano Siccardi.
The new immersive show “LEONARDO DA VINCI – RAFFAEL – MICHELANGELO Giants of the Renaissance” can be seen at the Kunstwerk Leipzig starting in January 19, 2019.

Gianfranco Iannuzzi and Massimiliano Siccardi had previously participated in the “Wonderful Worlds of Alice” and created a breathtaking world of fanaticism in the boiler room of the Kunstkraftwerk. There 23 beamers projected an audio-visual 360-degree experience of the highest technical and artistic level on 860 square meters of space:
Immersive technologies have developed rapidly and enable organizers to create an unforgettable experience for visitors. It is exciting to see how the journey will continue.
Until then, however, we can look forward to seeing what innovation and inventiveness Prolight + Sound has to offer this year.
