This winter, a new itinerary with light artworks, unique stories about the city, and collaborations with prominent Amsterdam cultural institutions enrich the eastern part of the city center.
From 650 entries, twenty established and up-and-coming artists from 16 countries have been selected to shake-up Amsterdam with the theme DISRUPT!

The participating artists have interpreted the theme in many different ways. Some installations act as completely new interventions in the streetscape, while other artists transform the existing architecture in the city and allow visitors to look at the city from a different perspective.
Here is the list of the artists involved in the 8th Amsterdam Light festival:
Alicia Eggert, 72andSunny Creative Collective, Laila Azra, Tom Biddulph & Barbara Ryan, Har Hollands, Ben Zamora, Utskottet, Maria Watjer, Wies Brand & Jasmijn Pielkenrood, UxU Studio, Lucy McDonnell (Studio Vertigo), Karolina Katarzyna Howorko, Gabriel Lester, Krijn de Koning, Martin Ersted, Lambert Kamps, Sergey Kim, Wilhelmusvlug, Masamichi Shimada, Republic of Amsterdam Radio & Nomad Tinker House, EON SLD.
