From 12th to 15th March 2020, the Luminale will take place for the tenth time in Frankfurt and Offenbach. And, for the very first time, from Thursday to Sunday, beyond the duration of Light + Building (8th to 13th March 2020), the world's leading trade fair for lighting and building technology.
As in 2018, patron of the Biennial for Light Art and Urban Design is the Mayor of Frankfurt, Peter Feldmann. “We expect the number of visitors to continue to rise in 2020. Already in 2018, over 250,000 Luminale guests were able to enjoy the innovative and fascinating lighting creations, as well as an exciting program in the festival center. After the terrific event in 2018, we decided to support the committed work of the festival team with additional funds from the tourism levy and thus play our part towards ensuring a successful future for the Biennial for Light Art and Urban Design.” Feldmann went on to say, “The Luminale is of immense importance for Frankfurt. With its popular and, at the same time, artistically high-quality program and intellectual discourse, it makes an important cultural contribution to this city. The commitment of the creative people involved, who, on their own initiative, contribute to the program with their ideas and projects, cannot be overestimated. This makes our Luminale unique even by international standards and we can be proud of this in Frankfurt and Offenbach.”
