Light Art Space (LAS) is a Berlin-based non-profit art foundation, working at the intersection of art, new technologies and science. Championing new exhibition formats and experimental projects, LAS strives to create a space for innovation and unique artistic experiences with an international reach.

Art should be accessible to all. With this in mind, LAS is committed to commissioning and presenting engaging experiences that are relevant to our communities and our times. Light is a leitmotif for the programme that features contemporary, pioneering and emerging artists involved in a variety of events, exhibitions, publications and digital projects. The open and interdisciplinary platform fosters a future-led approach that challenges our perception of the present and stimulates future imaginaries.
As the Foundation grows, LAS looks to build a new institutional model that plays a role in shaping our future and which will be grounded in a permanent home in Berlin.

"With light you can ask questions about who we are as humans. It’s also related to the future, to the newest technology and scientific research. We always wanted to pursue this interdisci­plinary approach, where you bring art and science and technology together."
