For four evenings from 28 September to 1 October, the Roche Tower in Basel, Switzerland, will be transformed into a unique art installation and monument to celebrating life’s special moments. Numerous artists and members of the community have contributed to an art show that will envelop the Roche Tower with bright lights and specialty sounds. Together with Basel, we celebrate all moments— big and small. From clasping the tiniest trinket to reaching the highest mountain, moments are what makes life so precious.

On opening night, the light projection will be livestreamed and available to watch from anywhere in the world.

Join us in celebrating life, with all its intricacies and complexities! Receive a notification for the livestream for the premier of the Tower Light Projection on 28 September at 9:00 pm (CET).
