lichterloh – founded in 2005 by Christoph Schmid and Clemens Gürtler
lichterloh is a research-based artist studio in Vienna experimenting with digital technologies using space, light and transformation as their basic tools, oscillating between stage and exhibition spaces. They create stage sets, video art, live visual performances and interactive installations that fuse art and technology.
best known for their live visual performances, lichterloh have been around the globe alongside acts such as Grandmaster Flash, Dixon, James Murphy, Die Antwoord, Tiga and at events and venues such as Arte Concert Night Paris, Sonar Barcelona, Mutek Tokyo, Melt! Berlin, Sony Hall NYC and many more. They’ve done projection mapping on the Great Wall of China, conceived stage designs for numerous festivals like Outline Moscow and of course the LHF and created live visual shows for Austrian electronic music band HVOB and chillout legends Kruder & Dorfmeister.
Their works have been shown at institutions such as the Austrian Cultural Forum NYC, Goldsmiths College London, Ars Electronica Center Linz, Parallel Vienna, Festival of Tolerance Zagreb, and in the permanent collection of the Jewish Museum Vienna and the Dorotheum Vienna.
