Dear Luminale Fans, dear Guests,

It is my pleasure to welcome you to the 8th Luminale. As Lighting Culture Biennale it accompanies the Light+Building trade fair. Over the coming days, Frankfurt am Main will be the most important meeting place for experts from the sector. In the evening Luminale visitors fill the streets and squares of the city where they can enjoy design objects, light art pieces, projections and performances. During Luminale, the city becomes an experimental proving ground for creative personalities. This laboratory character distinguishes Luminale from the numerous other lighting festivals, many of which are inspired by the success of Luminale and aim to attract people to the city centre with light. It is the only festival worldwide that targets both experts and the general public. It is an excellent platform for the next generation. Many a great carrier started with a Luminale project in Frankfurt. The importance of Luminale for Frankfurt’s appeal cannot be overestimated. In the evenings thousands of photographers go on photo safaris. Their pictures are spread around the globe and bear witness to the vitality in both Frankfurt and Offenbach, where you are also invited to the Luminale parcours. I wish you all, visitors to the trade fair and Frankfurt citizens alike, insights and new perspectives.

Peter Feldmann
Lord Mayor of the City
of Frankfurt am Main
